Manchester and Salford NUJ is the hub for the NUJ's exiled journalists network. Exiled journalists have sought refuge in the UK because their lives have been imperilled while working in their home countries. Some of the union's exiled members have been tortured and imprisoned. Some have been granted refugee status, while the union is supporting those who are still navigating the difficult legal process that all asylum seekers have to go through. This benefit will raise essential funds to help our exiled journalists so they can start to work again, or if going through the legal process, to help pay legal costs.
