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 Aideen Woods at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Recently, we have provided training to advisors who work at the British Red Cross, UKLGIG, Refugee Action (Liverpool), Asylum Link, the Refugee Council, Coventry Refugee & Migrant Centre, Praxis, Welsh Refugee Council, Kent Refugee Help and many others. Here are a few quotes from recent participants:
“This was a really good overview of the appeals process. I work with S4 clients mainly and help with their appeals, I wanted to remain up to date and not forget anything”, Nottingham Refugee Forum, Webinar, April 2017
“The trainer explained very clearly and the exercises helped me understand what the legislation meant for clients”, Derbyshire Women's Aid, Chesterfield, April 2017
“The training group was a reasonable size. Information and advice was very relevant with practical tips and good scenarios. It was interactive, so it was easy to ask questions and discuss”, London, April 2017
