We enable people of diverse origins to make the UK their home. Our approach involves people from the very beginning in the design of the services they use.
Working along-side migrants, refugees and long-settled British communities, we ensure people have a voice in the issues that affect them. This means they can transform their communities and society to work for all who live here.
Every year, we help hundreds of people get protection from violence and persecution so they can live in safety and build new lives. We help hundreds more to learn English, find work, and use their skills to transform their communities.
Thanks to the dedication and hard work of our volunteers and staff, people are able to rebuild lives, support themselves and their families, and achieve their ambitions.
