Story of hope: This is Payam. He is working as an empowerment worker in Hope Into Action. Here is his story of hope.
"I am a refugee and came to the UK on 2015. Since that, I started to learn English, I had to wait for a visa decision from Home Office.
I had lots of experience as an asylum seeker and being a refugee, of how the system works with the asylum process.
I believe that God chose me to be a hope and a role model for lots of people that coming into this country and maybe lose their hope.
When I finished university, I liked to have a little rest, and I wasn’t looking for a job. Out of the blue one of our priests sent me the job application from HIA and I believed it was God’s call to help more people and make new hope for the people, I applied for the job and I got it.
It’s true I have got my degree in computer science, and also with first class Honours. Maybe when you read this article, you may think what is the point why did I got to university when I am doing an unrelated job?
I believe in God, and I am sure I can use my skills in all aspects to help more people. God planned that I am here and I am alive and in a new season.

Health leaders in Wolverhampton have thanked city retailers for putting the safety and wellbeing of their staff and customers first by retaining measures designed to stop the spread of Covid-19.
Although existing legal restrictions were lifted earlier this week, many businesses have decided to keep measures like social distancing and sanitising stations in place, and are continuing to encourage their staff and customers to wear face coverings if they are able to.
They include Beacon Centre for the Blind, which has retained a series of measures across its retail shops and at its centre on Wolverhampton Road East to ensure people can visit in a Covid-19 secure manner. Chief Executive Lisa Cowley said: “Our team are continuing to wear masks and have regular testing and we’re encouraging those visiting our sites to wear a face covering and keep their distance from others to help protect us all."
The majority of the public are supportive of the move, with a recent ONS survey finding that nearly two thirds of adults plan to keep wearing face coverings in shops and on public transport.
Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, said: "Our message is clear: Covid's not over. Over 1,200 people in Wolverhampton tested positive last week, and we are imploring residents and businesses to be cautious, act carefully and use common sense to protect each other. It's great news that many retailers have taken a lead in this and it seems as though the majority of customers are happy to oblige, with the wearing of face coverings in stores and on public transport very much in evidence in Wolverhampton."

Win a signed Wolves shirt on the vaccine bus
Released: Wednesday 7 July 2021
To encourage people to have their Covid-19 vaccinations, Wolverhampton Wanderers FC are giving away a signed shirt whilst the vaccine bus is at the Molineux Stadium this week
The vaccine bus will be in the Stan Cullis Stand car park (opposite Asda) at Wolverhampton Wanderer’s Molineux Stadium tomorrow (Thursday 7 July) between 1pm and 7pm and then from Friday (8 July) until Sunday (11 July) between 11am and 6pm.
Anyone aged 18 or over can get their first or second doses of the life-saving Covid-19 vaccination, without needing to book an appointment. Both Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines are available.
Whilst the vaccination bus is at the Molineux Stadium anyone who has a vaccination there will have the chance to enter a prize draw to win a Wolverhampton Wanderers football shirt signed by the team ahead of the start of the new football season.
Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, said: “I want to say thank you to Wolves for supporting our efforts to protect the city and helping to make sure that as many people as possible have their Covid-19 vaccinations.”
“Having the Covid-19 vaccine protects you and those around you from the virus, so the chance to win a signed shirt too is an added bonus and a great prize for Wolves fans.”
“Anyone who has not yet had their vaccinations can come along and get them whilst the bus is at the Molineux Stadium
Wolves head of medical services, Matt Perry, said: “Ahead of the start of the new season we want as many people as possible to have their Covid-19 vaccinations, so we can get back to enjoying football at the Molineux safely.
“We’re pleased to be able to support the vaccination programme in Wolverhampton and hope local people will come to Molineux to get their jabs if they haven’t had them already.”
Latest figures show there were 206.9 new cases of Covid-19 per 100,000 people in Wolverhampton over the seven days to 5 July. That means 544 people in the city tested positive for the virus in that seven day period – though the true number of new cases will likely be higher.
Today is 'Thank you' day. From ARISE training, a big thank you to our family, friends and partners for all your support and encouragement over the past 12 months.
Email [email protected] or call 07764438836 for more info on how we can help.

Vaccine bus arriving in East Park this week
Released: Wednesday 23 June, 2021
The Covid-19 vaccine bus will be arriving in East Park this week, offering walk in Covid-19 jabs to anyone over the age of 18.
In a targeted programme aimed at taking the life-saving coronavirus vaccine out into communities where it is needed most, the mobile vaccine unit has been making stops around Wolverhampton.
The next stop will be East Park, where NHS and Public Health staff and volunteers, along with local Community Champions, will be offering the vaccine to any adults without the need for an appointment.
The bus will be in East Park, Hickman Avenue WV1 2BS, tomorrow (Thursday) and Friday between 3pm and 8pm and Saturday and Sunday from 10am until 6pm offering both the Pfizer-BioNTech and Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccines. First and second doses will be available, although injections must be at least eight weeks apart.
To support the vaccine bus and let people know it is in their area, Wolverhampton’s volunteer Community Champions are visiting local households to drop off information and encourage people to get their jab.
Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, said: “Working in partnership with the NHS and local GPs, the bus is proving an effective way of getting the vaccine to where it is needed most and is helping to protect some of our more vulnerable communities.
“We’ve seen good uptake at the bus so far, and have plenty of vaccines available so, if you haven’t had your first or second jab yet, come along to East Park this week and get it. Please also spread the word; if you know someone who hasn’t had theirs yet, let them know they can get it at the vaccine bus this weekend, too.”
Dr Kam Ahmed, Wolverhampton GP and Covid Vaccination Programme Lead said: “The bus is travelling across the city to increase uptake in particular areas such as Bilston last week and now it’s coming to East Park for walk-in Covid-19 vaccinations.
“I encourage you to take up the offer of your first dose, or your second dose if your first one was over eight weeks ago.
“Please come along to the bus whilst it’s in your local area.”
The vaccine bus will be visiting other parts of the city over the coming weeks, but there is no need to wait for it to come to your area; everyone over the age of 18 can now book their vaccinations online at www.nhs.uk/covidvaccine or by calling the NHS on 119.
The vaccine bus is based on a specially adapted coach and is provided by Holmeswood Coaches.
Latest figures show over 153,000 people in Wolverhampton have had their first jab, with nearly 113,000 having maximum protection after receiving both doses of the vaccine.
Note to Editors
The vaccine bus will be in East Park, Hickman Avenue, WV1 2BS on Thursday 24 and Friday 25 June 3pm – 8pm then on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 June 10am – 6pm.

● The vaccine is safe and effective.
● Getting vaccinated is easy. If you have any worries, then ask to talk them through when it is your turn.
● Having the vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and others
● It is important to have both doses when offered to you. The second dose makes sure that you have maximum protection
● The sooner people are vaccinated, the quicker we will return to a more normal way of life
● Once you’ve had the vaccine you still need to follow guidance. That means staying at home when you can, and following the ‘hands, face, space and fresh air’ guidance when you can’t and having twice-weekly tests.

Vaccine bus is rolling into Bilston
The vaccine bus pilot at Phoenix Park in Blakenhall was a great success last week, with over 1,000 people getting a vaccine. Thank you to those community champions who volunteered and helped to spread the message.
On Friday 18 and Saturday 19 June the vaccine bus will be at Mecca Bingo, Springvale Retail Park in Bilston, where anyone who aged 18 or over can get their first or second vaccination without needing an appointment. Please note that first and second dose must be at least 8 weeks apart. Keep an eye on social media for the very latest news about the bus.
Over the next few weeks the bus will move around the city, taking the vaccine out to areas where it is need most. The timetable is still being planned, but if you can volunteer any time over the next few weeks to help out please let us know. This would be to support the vaccination work and would include going door to door in the local area and helping to control any queues on the day.
Vaccines for people aged 18 and over
All adults in England, can now book their vaccination appointments through the NHS website www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/
This means that anyone aged 18 or over can now book their life-saving jab.
Over 150,000 people in Wolverhampton have had their first dose

Encouraging Wolverhampton to Get Active
There is still time to join our new WV Gets Active programme, aimed at encouraging people to get more active following the pandemic. Pre-Covid activity levels in Wolverhampton were below the national average and lockdowns have meant reduced access to sports and exercise for many people. The free programme works on a mobile phone app and challenges users to get more active, building up to 30 minutes exercise a day after 6 weeks.
Thank you to everyone who has completed our vaccine survey. We’ve had over 1,000 responses now. The short online questionnaire asks about your experience of having the vaccine, or if you have not had it, what may be causing hesitancy.
The survey is still open, and the results are helping us to improve the way we share information and make sure that the process of going for your jab is as easy as possible.
If you haven’t done so already, you can complete the survey here: www.wolverhampton.gov.uk/vaccine-survey
