Through the Penrith Experience, 15 asylum seekers and refugees from our partner projects come to Penrith for 5 nights, staying with local hosts. They spend the morning in language lessons and the afternoon and evening with sports, cultural and social activities.
It’s a lot of fun for all and a great privilege for Penrith folk to learn of the diversity of people who are seeking asylum in the UK and make some long-lasting friendships.
The next Penrith Experience will take place in Spring 2022.
We welcome enquiries from refugees and asylum seekers, partner projects in the north east and north west, and local people who would like to be involved.
