Accompaniment in Action: Being Human in the Asylum System

Join us for our latest Accompaniment in Action event where we will take a closer look at ‘Being Human in the Asylum System’, a new report from JRS UK. The report seeks to envisage a just and person-centred asylum system by bringing refugee experience and policy analysis into conversation with Catholic Social Teaching, against the backdrop of new, deeply troubling government proposals for an overhaul of the asylum system.

Join us online on Wednesday 26th May between 18:30 – 19:30 for our look into the new Being Human Report.



We will be joined by Sarah Teather, our Director, and Sophie Cartwright, our Senior Policy Officer, who will introduce the core principles the report argues should be at the heart of a radical reform of the asylum system. It offers a vision of a system founded on justice, designed for the welfare of refugees and not for their harm. Come along to hear what this system would look like.

Members of Refugees Call for Change, a self-advocacy group formed by refugee friends of JRS UK, will also share their experiences of the existing system which is rooted in hostility, and their thoughts on what a just asylum system would look like.

We will discuss what you can do to help bring about a more just asylum system, which welcomes refugees. We will also have plenty of time to answer your questions and encourage you to get in touch with us in advance with what you might like to ask by emailing Nick:


When: 18.30 – 19.30 on Wednesday 26th May 2021
