By | 17th July, 2018|News|

If you've not seen it yet, why not pop along to The Piece Hall between now and 12th August and have a peek at the ‘Communities of Calderdale’ Exhibition?! An interactive exhibition and programme of events to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of St. Augustine’s Centre and highlight the incredible diversity which makes Calderdale a very special place. The exhibition displays portraits, works of art and stories of people who call Calderdale home, be that through choice, birth or dispersal via the asylum system. Join in the pop-up photography sessions and add your face and stories to a growing collage. You can also learn about the story of St. Augustine’s Centre, our community centre welcoming all and working particularly with asylum seekers and refugees as we celebrate our landmark Golden Jubilee Year. With thanks to Community Foundation for Calderdale, Ghandi Statue Memorial Trust, the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, All One Collective & Lab and of course The Piece Hall for making this exhibition possible. Can you help on our information stall at the Piece Hall on Saturday 28 July, 10.30am – 1.30pm If you can help please email vicky.ledgwidge@staugustinescentrehalifax.org.uk

#50goodideas for #50yearsofstaugs The welcome programme continues to provide an advice drop-in 4 mornings a week and welcome newly arrived asylum seekers into Calderdale. The practical support of helping people navigate the asylum system is complimented by our support to help people feel welcomed, settled, and a part of our community. Many people we are supporting have faced harrowing experiences in their homeland and on their journeys to the UK. We are committed to helping and supporting them in the best way we can whilst they are here with us in Calderdale. We have an amazing team of Welcome Programme Volunteers and would like to thank them for all that they do! For more information about Volunteering with us please email vicky.ledwidge@staugustinescentrehalifax.org.uk
