On Saturday 22 Oct we had the honour to host a distinguished panel at our new premises of Rethink Rebuild Society. The panel featured a conversation with the renowned humanitarian surgeon, Professor David Nott OBE, author of the best-selling memoir “War Doctor”, and Co-Founder of David Nott Foundation.
Yesterday, we hosted the book launch of “Seeking Asylum and Mental Health: A Practical Guide for Professionals”. It was more than a book launch as we had the opportunity to hear from editors and authors of the book about the fascinating work they do. We also heard from people talking about their lived experience whilst seeking asylum and needing mental health care.
We are thrilled to win the BBC Radio Manchester Make a Difference Awards 2022 in the category Community Group for our effort in helping refugees and asylum seekers rebuild their lives and settle into life in Greater Manchester. It is a great testament to the work we do and a motivation to continue helping our community to withstand different kinds of challenges in the UK.
