Funded by the Home Office the programmes we manage offer humanitarian protection and prioritise help for survivors of torture and violence, women and children at risk, and those in need of medical care.
Clients receive regular visits from their support workers to enable integration and pick up any problems that may arise. Support tapers off towards the end of 12 months as independence increases. Clients are encouraged to engage in community activities and events, attend training, voluntary work and employment.
At the end of 12 months our intensive support finishes. By that time, the vast majority of clients are living independently and have settled into life in the UK. We continue to keep in touch and offer support through a drop-in service twice a week should it be needed. Some former clients do volunteer work with Horton Housing Association and other organisations.
The UK is accepting refugees under the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) eligibility criteria. Referrals to our services are made directly by the Home Office and information is securely shared with partner agencies in advance of resetllement.
