Brushstrokes is an award winning project in partnership with Father Hudson’s Care, The Infant Jesus Sisters and the parish of St Philip Neri, Smethwick. The project is well established with a proven track record in supporting refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in Sandwell and surrounding areas. We are recruiting maternity leave cover for our Advice Services Manager.  The post is responsible for managing our advice, information and support services for refugees, asylum seekers and migrants including OISC regulated Immigration advice and specialist advice on asylum support, housing, welfare benefits and health.  Our advice services are currently being delivered remotely via phone and the web and from our centre in Smethwick.  We also hope to reestablish our satellite sites and outreach in the future.
