MaCO is a community led group which has been set up to support Congolese asylum seekers and refugees that have been placed in Manchester. They offer free and confidential advice, assistance, representation, advocacy, translating and interpreting services in matters relating to welfare, health, social education (culture), academic development, employment, finance management and orientation to life in the UK.
The Coronavirus pandemic is worsening circumstances for the world's refugee population as well as internally displaced people.
Travel bans, closed borders and living conditions in camps all amplify the risks to migrants, and lead even more uncertainties with regards to visas and support services that can be accessed.
In this section, we signpost you to organisations working on migration, refugee and asylum services in the UK that provide emergency services, legal guidance and employability support.
