Emmeline Skinner Cassidy
Communications and External Affairs Coordinator
I come from Durham and first began working with refugees and asylum seekers in the North East as a teenager. I went on to study Arabic at Oxford University and spent a year in Amman where, alongside my studies, I volunteered with Oxfam’s Syrian refugee support programme. I completed a Master’s degree in Migration Studies at SOAS and worked as a Community Advocate in North London before starting work with Reset.
I'm excited by Community Sponsorship because of the potential to engage more people in the UK positively in the processes of providing refuge and asylum to those in need of protection.
