Active Through Football

Last updated 18/05/24

"Active Through Football (ATF) is a Sport England & Football Foundation funded project, that is centered around providing physical activity opportunities for individuals who have previously faced barriers. ATF works by giving ownership of sessions to our communities and encouraging leadership development.

Growing Together Levenshulme

Last updated 18/05/24

"Growing Together Levenshulme is a charity based in Manchester which runs therapeutic horticulture sessions for refugees and people seeking asylum at their allotment. The garden, as the project is affectionately known by participants, provides a safe space for asylum seekers and volunteers to relax in nature, find community and a sense of purpose whilst gardening together. There is an option of a hot lunch or a snack bag. People are welcome to turn up but the garden can be a bit hard to find and access, so it's better to contact the organisation first.

"We are a city-based introductory service connecting residents to refugees through small acts of kindness, inclusion and friendship. Once introduced by HostNation, it’s up to our befrienders and their refugee friends to make plans and to meet up to participate in city life. We ask for a weekly commitment of meeting face-to-face over three months, but many matches become firm friends. HostNation NW is here to help asylum seekers and refugees practise their English, integrate, participate in city life and feel more at home in Manchester. We’re about welcome and 1-1 friendship. We make matches based on geography, age, gender and interests and well over 80% of the matches we have made have had positive and sustained outcomes - some tell us they're friends for life! 84% of the refugees and asylum seekers we match say that they felt better, more positive and happier after knowing their friend for three months."

Lesbian Immigration Support Group

Lesbian Immigration Support Group

Last updated 18/05/24

"We are a group of women in Greater Manchester who support lesbian and bisexual asylum seekers and refugees. The group was set up in 2007 as an anti-deportation campaign for a lesbian from Sierra Leone. In February 2008 the campaign was successful, and she was given leave to remain in Britain. Due to the high profile of this campaign more lesbian asylum seekers contacted the group during this time looking for support. We therefore decided to continue as a general support group for lesbian and bisexual asylum seekers and refugees. The group now consists of several volunteers supporting a number of lesbian or bisexual refugees or women seeking asylum from countries such as Afghanistan, Jamaica, Liberia, Gambia, Saudi Arabia, Uganda, Cameroon, Nigeria, Zimbabwe, Iran, Namibia, South Africa, Pakistan, Kenya, Zambia, Malawi and Somalia. Many of the women contacting us were looking for safe space, where they can be comfortable to tell their stories about their sexuality. The group gives these women a place to be themselves amongst other lesbian and bisexual asylum seekers, refugees and supporters. We also give whatever support we can, depending on the needs of the individual women (e.g. support through the legal process, petitions for individual women to support their fight to stay in Britain, help with grants for women given refugee status, etc OUR AIMS ARE: To provide a social network offering emotional support to lesbians and bisexual women currently applying for asylum and those refugees who have been granted leave to stay in the UK To offer practical support and assistance to members with current asylum applications based on sexuality and to ensure that our members are treated equally and with dignity during the often-inhumane asylum process. WHAT WE DO: Organising monthly meetings as a safe space for socialising, discussion of campaigns and legal cases and individual support needs. Accompanying women to appointments at Dallas Court, the Home Office and with solicitors and others as appropriate. Supporting immigration court cases by attending court hearings, standing as witnesses and writing statements of support. For most of our members the group is the only safe space they experience in which they can relax and be open about their sexuality and their experiences and make friends."

Current projects are listed as follows: Shared Routes is our ‘Peer Navigator’ programme, promoting the skills and attributes from within refugee and asylum seeker communities across Manchester, Tameside and Salford. It aims at training people from migrant background who want to become more engaged in community work. The training will prepare people to become ‘community peer navigators’ and help them to develop their skills and knowledge. Our training follows an asset-based development approach that means we focus on developing people’s strengths. Next to the training we support our ‘peer navigators’ into volunteer placements at a local organisation of their choice where they can put what they have learnt into practice, gain new valuable experiences and built networks. Training and volunteering provide people with more options for their personal and professional development as well as their local engagement and connections. The MRSN Health and Well-being project is set up to provide support to this marginalised and vulnerable group. In light of this, it's important people have chance to gather together and take part in a sport together. Once a week, people meet to play football together. GREAT (Greater Manchester Refugees and Asylum Seekers Together) is our expert by experience forum. The Greater Manchester Refugee Step Change Consortium is a pioneering initiative by nine charities and Experts by Experience (EBE) to transform into a joined-up and collaborative ecosystem of support for refugees and people seeking asylum in Greater Manchester.

At the drop-ins there are refreshments, including a meal, opportunities to meet other women, get help and support from staff, volunteers and some other organisations that attend the drop-in. Children are always welcome and we have toys for them to play with. Women can get one-to-one casework and emotional support, find out more about the asylum process and life in the UK and get information about specialist services that could be useful to them. Women can request for someone to go with them to an important appointment, such as a hospital appointment or court. If their support needs are complex we may be able to offer them additional one-to-one support outside of drop-in. We are also launching a new mental health programme, where women can access support groups, one-to-one emotional support, arts and crafts, and various well-being activities."
