I have been chair and a director of RA-C since it was founded in 2015 and I am delighted to invite all our supporters and friends to join us at our AGM and celebration of our third year.
Since last year we have grown and matured from a loose network of humanity welcoming refugees and asylum seekers to Colchester to becoming a key player in meeting their needs and empowering their successful integration. We have become a Community Interest Company and made some wonderful partnerships, we feel we have almost grown up!
Most importantly we have become a hub for the welcome and welfare of refugees and asylum seekers, those needing support and those wanting to help. We hope we have helped to build community for the benefit of the people of Colchester and those joining us.
As always there will be stories and pictures from across the range of our activities. There will be lovely food and fellowship. We will both laugh and cry together.
You are welcome to hear us and steer us for next year.
