Our group has existed since 1999. Local people (including refugees from Chile and other countries) started the support group when the government announced that asylum seekers would be ‘dispersed’ to Swansea. Our drop-ins began in 2001: they were organised by some of the first asylum seekers who arrived here.
Our committee (elected April 2015) now includes:
Mona Balbaki, Tom Cheesman (treasurer), Helen Clancy, Thor Ekevall, Aliya Khalil, Celia Jones, Jill Spedding, Andre King Gomis, Stephen Beale and Marilyn Thomas (secretary).
SBASSG is a registered charity (1125649).
