Campaigns Advisory Group

We want to ensure our campaigning is informed by the experience and insights of people who have lived experience of the systems we’re trying to change.

Since January 2022 we have been working with a group of LGBTQI+ people with lived experience of the asylum system to steer our public campaigns. The group of volunteers meets regularly with staff to help plan, direct, implement and evaluate campaign activities – we’re currently working together on a detention campaign that will be launching soon.

We will be looking for new advisory group members in 2023, so if you are interested in joining please sign up to our newsletter to hear about this and other opportunities.

Although we are not currently recruiting advisory group members, due to our current campaign focus on detention we are always open to hearing from LGBTQI+ refugees who have experienced immigration detention in the UK who would like to join the group.

If that is you, please take a look at the role description and consider applying to join us.

No previous experience of campaigning is needed – your life experience and passion are more important than knowledge and work history, and our staff will support you to develop any skills you need.
