The Final Countdown.

We do apologise. We couldn’t resist.


Europia is pleased to announce that in partnership with Citizens Advice Bury and Bolton they will deliver support to all E.U nationals and their family members free of cost. They state they have the capacity to deal with complex immigration cases as well. Europia is also funded by the Home Office to deliver emotional support in an E.U language for victims of hate crime. They can provide professional holistic support to European Expats with multiple vulnerabilities.

Europia and Citizens Advice are holding their official launch from 1:30pm until around 3:30pm on Thursday the 29th of August 2019 at Manchester Cathedral.

There will be a short presentation and fully explain the E U Settlement Scheme and how it will impact, on European Nationals.

The presentation will be followed by a question and answer session and networking opportunities.

This is a free event.

Greater Manchester Poverty Action.

GMWRAG has previously posted useful information from GM Poverty Action but, with our customary brilliance, wholly forgot to add a link to their web site. This has now been remedied and it can be found in the appropriate sections down the right hand side of every page on our web site. For those of you who don’t know your left from your right it can be found over here ⇔. Alternatively you can always try typing

The latest edition of their excellent newsletter is also available and can be downloaded from here. GMWRAGs attention was especially drawn to the Manchester Sleepout at Manchester Cathedral on the 9th of November 2018 to raise funds and awareness to support people experiencing homelessness in Manchester.

Last year, 400 people braved the cold and rain to raise a stunning £120,000! This year, they are asking you to help them smash that figure. Sleep out for one night so others don’t have to every night. Register now. The Early Bird rate of just £15 is available until Friday the 31st of August 2018. GMWRAG has excellent recent history in raising the profile of those taking part in such events and, much more importantly, using that raised profile to boost the funds they’re able to raise.

If you are taking part please let GMWRAG know and we’ll be happy to give you some free publicity in order to generate extra monies.
