In the second episode, the Meet the Mancunian podcast talks to Mona Moussa, Refugee and Asylum Seeker Service Manager, Caritas Diocese of Shrewsbury about supporting refugees and asylum seekers and helping them integrate into the community.

Mona shares how the charity fundraises and provides support including shoes for winter, toys for children, and basics to help make temporary accommodation more like home. Caritas also supports the Home Office resettlement programme, Community Sponsorship which supports families through their first couple of years in the UK. The charity also raises awareness through talks at school assemblies, parishes, and community groups.
