➡️ Online event | Annual Survey briefing and AGM 2023

NACCOM invites members, partners and supporters to join us for the online launch of our Annual Survey and Impact Report, and our Annual General Meeting (AGM), on Thursday 9th November 2023, between 9.30am – 11am.

Each year, NACCOM’s Annual Survey paints a picture of the scale and impact of destitution across the NACCOM network over the last 12 months, and how frontline organisations in the UK are responding. The data we capture from our members about the services they have provided, and the people they have supported, during the past year highlights the growing complexity of destitution and homelessness experienced by people in the asylum and wider immigration system, and the voluntary sector’s vital role in providing support pathways 

At this event you will gain insights into NACCOM members’ work this year through the launch of this year’s Annual Survey data, which gives a comprehensive picture of experiences of – and frontline responses to – destitution in the asylum and immigration system. We’ll also be highlighting NACCOM’s key achievements in strengthening members’ practice and influence, and how our collective work is making the case for short- and long-term systemic and policy change.

The event will close with a short AGM, and an opportunity for NACCOM’s Full Members to vote in members of our Board of Trustees.

➡️ Monthly members’ drop-in Zoom call

Every month we host an informal Zoom call for NACCOM members who want to come together and share ideas, updates and issues, or just check in with others across the network. This is a friendly and informal space and all members are welcome. It’s also an opportunity to hear all the latest updates from NACCOM.

Details of how to join the call are circulated via our members’ Google group in advance of the meeting (if you are a member and would like to join our Google group, please email Hannah Gurnham).

Members’ calls take place monthly on Wednesdays, between 1pm-2pm on Zoom. 2023 dates are as follows:

➡️ Wednesday 1st November

➡️ Wednesday 6th December

If you have any queries regarding our national members’ call, please get in touch with Paul Catterall, our Network Development Coordinator, to request further details, or to request access to the meeting independently of the Google group.

➡️ Member Regional Hub Meetings

NACCOM is committed to seeing an end to asylum and migrant destitution and part of the way we do this is to share our ideas, support one another and develop best practice. Our Regional Hubs are a great opportunity to find out more about the diverse range of NACCOM members’ accommodation projects as well as other exciting initiatives.

Details of our winter Hub series will be posted here soon.

If there are specific topics that you would like to cover at any of these meetings, please do get in touch.

All members will receive an invitation to the hub meetings as soon as the dates are announced – if you’re a member and haven’t received your invitation, then please email our Network Development team. We also welcome attendance from partners and other colleagues in relevant fields.

➡️ Thematic Hub Meetings

Following feedback from members, we have also launched a series of ‘thematic’ hub meetings to explore the specific issues facing different types of accommodation project and drop-in services in the network, as we transition out of the pandemic. Details of these will be published here and sent directly to members.
