The Upper Room works with socially disadvantaged people to improve their lives, and give them a second chance. Their aim is to help people overcome the barriers they face, in order to find work and become economically independent.
The Winter Lecture Series is a fundraising event. Tonight’s talk is about brief encounters on the refugee trail with Matthew Price.
