West Yorkshire has secured a devolution deal with central government that will see us electing a mayor of West Yorkshire in 2021. The mayor will have powers and funds to make changes at a local level that can improve the lives of people living in West Yorkshire.
Asylum Matters and Same Skies recently convened a meeting of people who are interested in making sure that migrant communities are included in and can benefit from the future mayor’s plans for our area.
We will be meeting again on 29th October at 10am so please do get in touch with me at [email protected] if you would like to join us or for more information.
