Equality, Local Government and Communities Committee

Support for refugees and asylum seekers in Wales

 

Who are we?

The National Assembly for Wales is made up of 60 Assembly Members elected by the people of Wales to represent them and their communities and to make sure the Welsh Government is doing its job properly.

 

The Welsh Government is responsible for:

- proposing laws;

- setting policies; and,

- spending money on things like hospitals, schools and roads in Wales

 

The National Assembly for Wales’ job is to make sure that the things the Welsh Government is doing are in the best interests of Wales and its people.

 

What are we doing?

One of the Assembly’s committees, the Equality, Local Government and Communities Committee, is currently looking into refugees and asylum seekers in Wales.

On 17 November, between 11.00 and 12.00, we’d like you to come and meet with us at the Trinity Centre, Cardiff to talk about your views and experiences.

We’d like to find out:

  • what the main problems are for refugees and asylum seekers in Wales, particularly around access to health services, housing, education, employment, interpreters, advocacy and transport;
  • if refugees and asylum seekers have access to the information and advice they need;
  • how easy it is to integrate into new communities;
  • how easy it has been to find work, for those granted leave to remain and working in the UK; and
  • about the prevalence of discrimination and abuse against refugees and asylum seekers.

 

We will look forward to meeting you on 17 November. This will be an opportunity for you to make sure your views are heard and help us make sure the Welsh Government is doing its job properly in supporting refugees and asylum seekers in Wales.
