Refugees and Asylum Seekers Conversation Club
The Conversation Club has been running since May 2016 in Leeds City Centre at Mill Hill Chapel. A group of caring adults from all walks of life started the project to provide a safe place for refugees and asylum seekers. Vulnerable families who, through no fault of their own, have to leave the countries they love, because of war and persecution, have to seek protection in another country. Our volunteers provide tea, coffee, snacks and healthy food. We distribute nappies, sanitary protection and toiletries when we can. We play board games, chat and most of all smile and laugh.
In November 2017, we were awarded Highly Commended ‘Most Inspirational Project of the Year’ at the Leeds Compassionate City Awards.
We have also been featured in a play called ‘Searching for the Heart of Leeds’ at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in June 2018. Please help support The Conversation Club by volunteering with us or supporting us at our fundraising events.
