The official site for ARKH (Asylum Seekers & Refugees of Kingston upon Hull) / Northern Refugee Centre (Hull and East Riding)

On 8 July we received a visit from Karl Turner MP, Member of Parliament for East Hull, and his assistant/caseworker Mary Cooksey. Karl and Mary received a tour of the centre and were given the opportunity to meet staff and volunteers of ARKH.

Key Issues

Discussing Key Issues

We spoke to Karl about government proposals to reduce funding for ESOL and further reductions to legal aid for asylum cases, a subject which Karl, given his legal background, is particularly familiar with.

We also discussed in detail our recent project with East Hull Secondary School – the Archbishop Sentamu Academy – and our plans to increase our presence in East Hull Schools.

A Successful Visit!

We enjoyed showing Karl and Mary around our centre and having the opportunity to talk about our work and we hope to welcome them back to ARKH in the future.
