Mary joined Asylum Matters as Campaigns Project Manager for Yorkshire & Humberside in June 2018. She started volunteering with refugees and asylum seekers in Leeds as a student. After spending time living in the “Jungle” refugee camp in Calais, Mary returned to Leeds to coordinate the local City of Sanctuary group and to work as an Adviser and ESOL tutor at RETAS Leeds, with a special interest in access to higher education. She also worked on the “28 day project”, supporting newly granted refugees to avoid destitution. In her spare time Mary probably has her head in a good book!
