This year's conference will focus on themes of representation/perception of people seeking asylum, their public acceptance and portrayal. This will allow us to look at the topics of co-production and learning from client experience; the impact of chronic loneliness through the asylum process; and language used when talking about asylum issues. 

With a desire to work collaboratively in addressing these topics, we present our second annual Building Bridges conference. The agenda will include workshops and a panel discussion to explore these issues and what we can collectively do to support this client group in the best way possible. Attendance is free of charge, and a link to the event will be sent via email once your place is booked.
