We work with refugee families who have been forced to flee their home country because of terrible conflicts in the Middle East. Many have life-threatening health conditions or are suffering from trauma because of their experiences.
When a family first arrives they need lots of practical help with making a new home. We use our experience in housing management to help them access essential services including help with learning English and finding work.
Our aim is to help refugees to rebuild their lives so that they can live in safety and peace and integrate into the community.
|Our ability to resettle families is based on the availability of affordable properties, if you’re interested in helping to provide properties for refugee families read this flier for more information:|
Using finances raised by local community and an ever growing team of volunteers we directly sponsor families to resettle in Bedfordshire under the Home Office’s Community Sponsorship Scheme, providing an excellent professional service and a personalised approach through the support offered by the winder community.
Reset is a national umbrella organisation supporting potential Community Sponsorship groups across the UK. We are the East of England Regional Coordinator, we help groups through each step of the sponsorship process, from preparing the application to post family arrival support, through one-to-one consultations, public events, training days and networking opportunities.
We provide bespoke ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) tuition for our non-English speaking clients to help them further build community and open up further employment opportunities. For new entrants into the UK speaking the language is vital so often this training is their first step toward independence.
