In May and June, the Sanctuary in Wales Project has been delivering workshops in Swansea, Cardiff and Newport about the benefits of employing refugees. In collaboration with Displaced People in Action's Refugee Employment Project, these morning sessions gave participants the chance to hear from sanctuary seekers living in Wales, and get guidance from legal practitioners Morgan Cole about employers' obligations.

Thanks to Scarlet Design for these visual minutes depicting part of the Cardiff session. The final workshop was on 5 June, in Newport. For more information, contact

Oxfam and DPIA's projects are funded by the Big Lottery Fund.
