Resources for Mavar members

Mavar has several specially commissioned Resource Packs for its members both in London and Manchester, to help them explore the outside world:

  1.  A GENERAL PACK: full of useful information to help you access education, housing, employment, welfare, family law advice etc., together with a list of websites that you might find helpful and a sex guide.
  2.  AN EDUCATION PACK: with detailed information about courses, colleges and funding.
  3.  A DIVORCE GUIDE: a short summary of the processes involved in getting a divorce.
  4. A VOCATIONAL PATHWAYS GUIDE: outlining everything you need to know about Apprenticeships and Vocational Qualifications.

In the first section of the General Pack you’ll find answers to questions you might have about the process of exploring the world beyond ultra-orthodoxy, and where to begin.

The CONTENTS list below sets out the sections of the General Pack. To read an example of a section click one of the following: Improving Spoken English or Employment .
