Call for Evidence: experiences in resilience of older people who have been refugees or asylum seekers

Greater Manchester, in partnership with 100 Resilient Cities - Pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation (100RC), is undertaking work to become more resilient to the shocks – catastrophic events like storms, pandemics and floods – and stresses that weaken the capacity of a city to deal with the challenges it may face, like skills shortages, homelessness, and unemployment, which are increasingly part of 21st century life.

 

Selected from more than 1,000 applicants around the world, GM joined the 100RC network in 2016, joining the likes of London, New York, Bangkok and Rio de Janeiro.

 

As part of this important work, AFA is looking to speak to VCSE organisations or statutory bodies who have evidence (whether academic, informal sector findings or examples of their own work) on the experiences of older people who have been asylum seekers and refugees during their life and the impact that this has had on their resilience.

 

If you hold this information, or would like to organise a meeting. please contact kirsty.bagnall@gmcvo.org.uk by Friday 24th August.
