Shaun Bailey meets Turkish community in virtual roundtable

We were delighted to host Conservative mayoral candidate Shaun Bailey, directors of many Turkish associations and councillors on Feb 15th, to discuss Shaun’s ideas to tackle the issues Turkish community is facing.

There was a wide range of topics including: missing statistics about the community, unavailability of Covid brochures in Turkish, financial stress many small businesses and associations are experiencing, dealing with voter apathy, healing the wounds after Brexit campaign’s anti-Turkey rhetoric and how to prevent terrorism financing.

Here is some press coverage including notes (in Turkish): Hurriyet, Turkish Press, Eurovizyon, and Shaun’s related tweet is here.

If you are interested in participating in future roundtables, please let us know and feel free to suggest topics.
