Join Medact’s Migrant Solidarity Group for the launch of their new report on the medical consequences of contingency accommodation for people seeking asylum. We will present the findings of the report, hear from people working in contingency accommodation and host a panel discussion on what we can do as allies to those housed there.
Read Profiting from Pain: Accommodating asylum seekers in England, a blog accompanying the report.
