ASAP has been providing representation, advice and advocacy on asylum support matters for over 10 years. As one of the UK’s leading asylum support charities, we are uniquely placed to provide expert training to frontline organisations. All our trainers have experience of representing at the Asylum Support Tribunal, which allows them to provide expert advice and training.
We offer a range of training packages to cater to your services skills and requirements. If your organisation requires bespoke training on any aspects of asylum support law, please contact Claire Tindale at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Recently, we have provided training to advisors who work at the British Red Cross, Freedom from Torture, Refugee Action, Govan Community Project, the Scottish Refugee Council, PAFRAS, Welsh Refugee Council, and many others. Here are a few quotes from recent participants:
