Refugee Resettlement Programme
We are working in partnership with the Refugee Council to deliver life-changing support to resettled refugees from Syria, Iraq and other countries across the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) Region.
Every year the UK welcomes resettles a number of refugees under the VPRS (Vulnerable Person Resettlement Scheme), and in coordination with the UNHCR and local partner agencies, families escaping violence and conflict are supported in rebuilding a life in the UK.
Our aim is to ensure each and every individual resettling here achieves independence and is well placed to become an active member of their community. Our role is to be there when people need it most and provide them with the emotional and practical support they require to be empowered.
