In working with trusted local organisations we support refugees and asylum seekers in our local communities. This looks different in each area based on the needs of organisations we work with.
Through our Workshops projects we provide monthly sessions to young refugees. Drawing from a number of professional and inspirational within our church we create fun and worthwhile workshops that will help young refugees gain skills and knowledge. The interactive sessions which last about 90 minutes cover different spheres of society such as business, education or creative arts. We currently run workshops in Croydon and in North West London.
Working in partnership with different refugee organisations such at the Refugee Council, we carefully select the themes of the workshops to meet the interest of the young people. In addition, special events, such as a Christmas Party are also arranged to provide a further opportunity for social connection and networking.
Newly arrived refugees are often in need to set up their new life. In a number of locations we work to support refugee families with furniture donations, food packs and other help they might need to find their feet in the UK.
