Community Safety for Asylum Seekers 28 February 2020

Introduced and facilitated by Godefroid, fifteen Asha users divided into two groups and were asked to identify acceptable and unacceptable behaviour ‘back home’ contrast this with what may be acceptable or unacceptable here in the UK.  Alcohol and drunkenness, sexual consent, rape, grooming and touching as well as sexual identity and trans gender issues were instanced as areas of behaviour which aroused some uncertainty.  When the session ended, users continued to ask questions and to discuss the various topics. All agreed that they felt better informed and more confident than before.

Tamba Musa, who convened the session commented, “Community learning is creating a very positive impact on the lives of service users. The frequency of their being involved in crime is presently low and being well informed should keep it that way.”
