Together we are laying the foundations for our new campaign against the destitution that many women face as they go through the asylum process.

Women joined the retreat from Women Asylum Seekers Together (WAST) ManchesterCoventry Asylum and Refugee Action Group (CARAG), Women in Hope (Birmingham), Eagle’s Wing (Bury) and Women for Refugee Women (London).
