One Strong Voice on Taking The Lead
Why is the Taking The Lead network important to you?
"Taking the Lead is a non-judgmental space where we can share our challenges, hopes and dreams whilst encouraging each other. It allows us to network and understand the global sector for Refugees Led organisations."
With more funding and resources, our organisation could...
"build capacity, lead advocacy in the refugee sector, and campaign to end of the hostile environment that refugees face."
A shift from negative to positive narratives about refugees would lead to...
"a more welcoming environment for refugees ensuring that they are treated with dignity and helped to rebuild their lives."
If refugees could influence decisions that affect them, it would mean...
"a rich diverse society where we learn from each other and grow as a community."
