Every week Global Link hosts a drop-in for refugees and asylum-seekers. This is a safe space for refugees to meet local people and each other, to share food, and find out about the social, physical and cultural activities available to them through
Lancaster and Morecambe City of Sanctuary.
The space also provides access to English classes and other courses at the Further Education Colleges, to access volunteering opportunities, and to prepare for finding work, housing and life in the UK. Each week volunteers, including refugees, cook food to share.
Produced by participants of Global Link’s Refugee Drop-in, this short film to publicises the weekly meeting and highlights some of the activities taking place.
