Service: New Communities

A partnership approach, working with Bradford Council and Bevan Healthcare CIC, to provide housing, healthcare and wrap-around support to help refugees settle into their new life in the UK.

The resettlement 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 support to settle into the UK. This includes:

  • Housing-related support (e.g. help to manage a tenancy, set up bills)
  • Health screening
  • ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages)
  • Education assessments
  • Individual needs assessments to develop support and integration plans
  • Community engagement
  • Welfare benefits advice
  • Support into employment and Job Search advice.

Our support is designed to help individuals and families integrate and live independently in the UK.


Referrals to these services are made directly by the Home Office under the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) eligibility criteria.

Clients access ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) and Cultural Orientation sessions at our Training Centre.

Syrian clients who are ready for work can access our Specialist Training and Employment Programme (STEP), funded by World Jewish Relief.
