What we do

We offer a holistic service designed to make sure that refugees can find meaningful employment that is commensurate with their skills, experience and qualifications.

By doing so we help their successful settlement in, and integration with, local communities.

In 2013, the UK was home to 120,000 refugees and there are 20,000 new applications every year for refugee status.

Although these refugees have higher levels of education, skills and qualifications than the UK average, an eagerness to work and are mostly of working age, unemployment levels in refugee communities remain above 50%, compared to 6% for the national average.

This is due to a number of refugee-specific barriers that prevent them from finding employment.

Iraq / IDPs / An Iraqi woman and her son, both internally displaced people from Mosul, walk on the road outside of the Garmava transit camp near a checkpoint on a road between Mosul and Dahouk in Iraqi Kurdistan, Thursday, June 14, 2014. In the past two days 53 people from nine families fled Mosul and took refuge at the site.  The camp will have the capacity to initially host some 3,000 people. UNHCR monitoring teams report that many of the 300,000 people who have sought safety in the Erbil and Duhok governorates arrived with little more than the clothes they were wearing. Many people have no money, and nowhere to go.  While some stay with relatives, others are temporarily in hotels where they are exhausting what funds they have.  Many families in Duhok are also sheltering in schools, mosques, churches and unfinished buildings.  / UNHCR / S. Baldwin / June 2014
