Help Greater Manchester Immigration Aid Unit by becoming a Trustee.

Do you believe that every person who claims asylum in the UK has the right to a rapid, fair and humane assessment of their claim?

Do you believe that someone who is newly arrived from another country, who may have been tortured and has gone through a harrowing journey should have the legal advice they need to understand how to make a claim for asylum?

Do you believe that people who are claiming asylum should be treated with respect and dignity and not forced to live in squalid conditions or be imprisoned?

Then we would love to hear from you.

We are looking for people who believe in what we are doing, who are committed to social justice more generally, and can help us to do it better. Some experience of the challenges faced by non-profit organisations would be helpful but is not essential. More important is your commitment to ensuring the rights of people seeking asylum and others are protected.

We are looking for people who have skills in: organisation management and development, finance, property/estate management, fundraising, communications and marketing, legal advice, immigration law or any of the other many other types of knowledge and skills necessary to run a complex charity with a turnover of approximately £1million and 23 staff.

See our Trustee page for more details and to download the applicaiton form.
