Swansea is a city of welcome and there are a great number of existing services available to asylum seekers and refugees. It is our aim to connect the people we support with much needed help in their new communities.
With the aim of improving the capacity of individuals/organisations in supporting Asylum Seekers and Refugees in the Swansea area, Unity in Diversity (Swansea 2015) and Swansea BayAsylum Seeker Support Group invite you to complete the following activity. Participants who demonstrate a clear understanding of appropriate referral routes will receive a certificate of acknowledgement in using effective signposting.
Using our Directory of Services, appropriate referral routes will be identified using example case scenarios. As this is designed to improve our collective capacity participants and organisations that contribute extra information on new/existing services will have specific feedback and acknowledgement for improving the directory as contributors.
This training is provided free of charge and is open to any individual/organisation with an interest in supporting asylum seekers and refugees. Organisations that have a number of staff participating will receive acknowledgement in the form of an ‘Organisation Certificate’. It is very important to note that many of the services in our directory support the general population, not just asylum seekers and refugees.

Matt’s Cafe is part of the Real Junk Food (TRJF) Project, a network of national and international cafes (both permanent and pop-ups) with one central objective: to intercept food waste destined for land fill and use it to feed people who need it, on a pay as you feel basis.
Matt’s Cafe is the first registered café on the TRJF network in Swansea.
It is based at Matthew’s House, High Street, Swansea, SA1 1LW More info at: http://matthewshouse.org.uk/matts-cafe/
The innovative pay as you feel concept encourages people to think about what that plate of food means to them, and value it in whatever way they can. By choosing not to segregate people based on financial circumstances these cafes can be funded, but in a manner that neither patronises those who need it most and empowers others to freely support it.
It provides the balance between the need for funding and the need for giving, but it does so in a very blended format – everyone is equal in being fed, it is up to the individual to pay what they feel.
Our three pillars:
To reduce food waste
To feed those with or without funds
To provide opportunities for those who are long-term unemployed
