RefuAid support access to language tuition, education, housing and employment.
More people are moving than ever before. Many people are moving because they are forced to. When arriving in a new community or country people who have been forced to flee their home face huge challenges in accessing housing, language tuition, education and employment. There are few initiatives successfully providing long-term solutions in refugee hosting communities. This creates a cycle of dependency on emergency response.
Your support enables us to increase access to education, employment, housing and healthcare in refugee-hosting communities. Our projects support both newly-arrived refugees and the local community. Refugee camps place a limit on people's human rights and strip away people's ability to make their own choices about their lives. We look to solutions that restore independence and dignity. The projects we support and run show there is another way to support both refugees and the whole community.
RefuAid provide access to employment oppurtunities in the UK. The Access Loan scheme provides people who have claimed asylum in the UK to return to their previous career with an interest-free loan that covers the cost of requalification.
Having a class to go to gives you a safe place, structure and something to do. But it’s more than that: language is the medium we use to express ourselves and the biggest barrier to integration.RefuAid are providing access to structured English and Greek lessons with qualifications.
RefuAid support access to higher education in Greece and the UK. For so many who are forced to flee their homes access to education is one of the first things to be denied. We are restoring that for young people and supporting access to higher education.
With your help we support long-term housing projects that provide housing to refugees and destitute local people. Our housing projects provide safe and legal private housing. RefuAid works toward encouraging alternatives to protracted refugee camps.
