Sheffield University Film Unit is a professional quality independent cinema located deep within the University of Sheffield Union of Students. They show films all through Freshers’ week, and then every Friday, Saturday & Sunday.

A huge thank you to the Film Unit for supporting us!
ASSIST Sheffield will soon be delivering another ‘Asylum the Basics’ training session. These sessions are excellent for providing background information and awareness for anyone working with those within the asylum system. They are also a valuable opportunity to raise awareness of asylum issues with key personnel.
