Our vision

Our vision is for all refugees coming to the UK to be successfully integrated into our society.

Our mission

To support the settlement and resettlement needs of refugees to develop their independence and equip them with the skills they need to gain sustainable employment in the UK.

To promote the positive contribution that refugees can have on our local communities.

To be a nationally and internationally recognised leader in the refugee sector, driving change and transforming lives through the dedication and unique expertise of our staff.

To collaborate with partners who share our vision for refugee integration.

Our values

People come first in all we do. We work for the people and with people, and that is always something we keep in mind.

We are engineering the ways in which society can blend its differences and become stronger through its diversity. We unite the driving force of the people to create services and products to serve the needs of people.

We are here to connect and empower, helping integration happen from the standpoint of the individual- the refugee, the migrant and the local.

We are here to rethink integration and the power of society, where everyone is important, deserves to have the best opportunities in life and everyone can make a change in this.
