Staffordshire North and Stoke Citizens Advice Bureau (SNSCAB) and Refugee Action are working in partnership to roll out a number of free training sessions to raise awareness of refugee issues and the Syrian Resettlement Programme. Sessions will be running from June until the end of September.

This invitation is open to all voluntary sector, community organisations and statutory agencies who come into contact with refugees during the course of their work or for anyone who wishes to broaden their knowledge on the rights and entitlements of refugees in the UK.

  • A comprehensive insight into the issues faced by refugees
  • Information on rights and entitlements to main stream services in the UK
