ACH wins the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise!
The Queen’s Award for Enterprise is an annual business award bestowed on companies in the UK, by Her Majesty the Queen – an incredible honour!
ACH is one of 205 organisations in the country to be presented with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise, considered the most prestigious business accolade in the UK. Her Majesty the Queen makes the awards yearly on the advice of the Prime Minister, assisted by an advisory committee made up of representatives of government, industry, commerce and trade unions.
EU Migrant Communities: Integration, Brexit and Covid-19 | A report
At ACH, we focus on building individuals’ resilience in the labour market, upskilling and supporting refugees and migrants into sustainable, higher-level employment to develop their independence and help their integration into life in the UK.
Responding to the Nationality and Borders Bill: Seeking asylum is a human right
The Nationality and Borders Bill is a threat to the right to seek asylum enshrined in the 1951 Refugee Convention, and is a very concerning piece of legislation. It will criminalise ‘irregular’ asylum routes, whilst failing to provide safe and legal routes.
Both those at risk in Afghanistan, and Afghans already in the UK, must be supported through this crisis. We must do all we can to ensure safe and legal routes to resettlement and make certain Afghans already seeking asylum in the UK are not left in limbo or at risk of repatriation.
EU Migrant Communities | Meeting needs through Brexit and Covid-19
At ACH we provide services for newly arrived communities in the UK. Whilst many of our day-to-day services are tailored for newly arrived refugee communities, we have also become concerned by EU migrant communities impacted by the simultaneous issues of Brexit and Covid-19.
