Through my LLM studies in human rights at Swansea University, I have become aware of the barriers to further education faced by asylum seekers in Wales. Asylum seekers struggle to meet the costs of registration fees, travel, and essential training equipment. I invite SU students, staff and members of the public to join me in Going the Distance to raise much needed funds so that asylum seekers can enjoy their right to education. This cause is supported by the work of DPIA and Swansea City of Sanctuary.

Choose your own activity (such as walking, cycling or running), set your personal distance goal, tell your colleagues, friends and family, and start fundraising here!

You can share your results with us by joining us on social media by using #GoTheDistance, posting them on our Facebook page or by joining the Strava Club. You can find the following at:
