Location: Vernon Castle Room, Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library, The Forum, Millennium Plain, Norwich, NR2 1AW

A workshop to help delegates understand the background to the Syrian conflict and the resettlement needs of Syran refuge families in the UK

Mallory Carlson from the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) is leading this workshop for the benefit of delegates who are welcoming Syrian refugee families in their town, city or district. These people working with newly arrived families will learn about Syrian culture and heritage, and the background to the conflict which has driven them from their homes.

The workshop will cover:
•The historical context
•Syrian culture and traditions
•The reason for the civil war
•Resettlement experiences of refugee families.

Places are limited, and if we are over-subscribed, we will allocate places to delegates who are already working with Syrian families in the East of England.

Cancellations, substitutions and transfers

This is a free event, but anyone who cancels a place without providing a substitute on or after 26 October will be charged a penalty of £50.
