ASSIST Sheffield

Challenging asylum destitution

Invite us to talk to your group, school or organisation

  • Do you feel that your community group, school, college, congregation or other organisation should hear first-hand about the experience of seeking asylum?
  • Would you like to spread the truth about why asylum seekers in our city become destitute?
  • Would you like to know more about the work ASSIST does to support them?

Nothing conveys the reality of life as an asylum seeker as powerfully as hearing the story of someone who has first-hand experience.

Contact us at efa [at] to arrange for us to come and speak your group. Include your phone number and we will get back to you to arrange a date and to agree the approach to bringing our message to your people.

Typically we provide two speakers, one of whom will talk about their own experience as an asylum seeker.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you and to meeting you and members of your group/organisation.
