  • The support available to women with leave to remain under UK law
  • The different immigration statues women can hold under EU law
  • The rights attached to different immigration statuses
  • Survivor’s different rights to access welfare
  • How to best advocate for survivors who have been wrongly denied services

This training will be led by Radha Ruskin, a Women’s Aid trainer specialising in domestic violence and immigration law.

The training will run from 9.30am-4.30pm, and will take place at St George’s Centre, 60 Great George Street , Leeds, LS1 3DL.
