Stand Up, Speak Out Training Series

We won’t let our public services become a tool of hostile immigration enforcement. It’s time to stand up and speak out

Join our free, online training series to resist the Hostile Environment in public services. 

Get skills and knowledge to act in solidarity for migrant justice. 

Whether you are working in public sector services like social care, health care, housing, schools, or in charities and community settings, we all have a part to play in building a better world.

Last year we trained over 1000 people – in 2024 we’re back with more resources to resist the hostile environment. Sessions include: Asylum system 101; Everyday borders; NHS Charging; Housing justice; Collective care; Climate justice and migrant justice.

Session Leaders: Stand Up, Speak Out is led by an incredible community of people directly impacted by the hostile environment, frontline staff from migrant rights organisations, specialists, academics, community leaders and national organising networks. 

Attend one or as many relevant sessions as you would like.
