On Monday 12 November ERN will be attending Sanctuary in Parliament, an annual event which provides an opportunity for MPs to listen and engage with the experiences of refugees and asylum seekers, organised by City of Sanctuary.
This year will focus on 3 areas:
1. The right to work for people who have asylum claims outstanding for more than 6 months (#LifttheBan)
2. Extension of refugee family reunion ( #FamiliesTogether);
3. An end to indefinite immigration detention ( #Time4aTimeLimit);
On the second Monday of each month we hold a social gathering at the lovely Zig Zag Cafe (16 High Street, Epsom) from 5pm-7pm and everyone is welcome. Our next Social Event will be on 10th December 2018. Please come and join us.
Epsom and Ewell Refugee Network collects NEW pants, vests, warm socks, gloves, hats and scarves, coats, shoes and toiletries for adults and children. The collection will be delivered by SAMARA’S Aid Appeal and ANAYA Aid to children living in vulnerable conditions in Syria and Iraq. If you have anything to donate, please contact us and we will get in touch with you.
We celebrate diversity and welcome new people in town. We organise community events to share cultural experiences and learn!
Epsom & Ewell Refugee Network organises events to enable refugees and asylum seekers, volunteers and friends to meet and learn from shared experiences. Be it over a shared meal or a football match, we enable people to bond and build up their own network of like-minded friends and supporters.
