Deadline: August 5, 2018
The Refugee Council, in partnership with RETAS (Refugee Employment and Training Advice Service), HCAS (Humber Community Advice Services), Path Yorkshire and the Goodwin Trust, applied for Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) funding (subject to confirmation) to roll out a model of integration for refugees who have status based in London, Leeds and Hull, called the ‘New Roots’.
The project aims to engage with 3,568 refugees with multiple and complex needs over a period of two years, providing a range of holistic, intensive and enhanced support activities, adding significant value to the limited refugee integration provision in each area and improving integration outcomes.
Participants will benefit from a bespoke wrap-around programme through three stages:
- Engage: specialist casework (move on and crisis work)
- Connect: social integration, language and wellbeing activities
- Aspire: training, volunteering and employment opportunities
This programme also provides a valuable opportunity to develop a bespoke integration measurement tool, as well as informing integration policy work with local and central government.
Closing date: 5th August 2018.
Interview date: 14th August 2018.
