Changing the Conversation about Asylum Seekers” aims to change the conversation on Asylum Seekers and improve the lives of asylum seekers. It is a programme of "table talks" events inside civil society organisations, which provide an opportunity for asylum seekers to share their personal stories and for us to explore their questions and concerns about asylum seeker policy in a safe, respectful space.

Goals of the Table Talk Events

We aim to have a new conversation about asylum seekers, focused on respect, relationship, story and values.

By the end of our time together we want:

1.         Participants to think of asylum seekers as people

2.         Participants to leave prepared to think about asylum seekers & make informed decisions

3.         To build relational power – the relationships around shared values that help people to act.
