Annual Conference 2020

Our Annual Conference took place at the end of last month- we had a great day getting to know volunteers (old and new), and listening to some great speakers. Our volunteers fed back that the day helped to increased their knowledge of immigration detention, and made them feel a sense of belonging to the organisation, which in a role which can often involve quite solitary work is great news! We look forward to planning our 2021 conference, which will fall in the 20th year of the Befrienders visiting the people detained in YWIRC.

Here are a few pictures from the day.
