“To improve the lives of refugees, asylum seekers in Nottingham

NNRF and our thirteen partner organisations have received a pot of funding funding to deliver activities and services that will help people from refugee and asylum seeker communities to get the right support & advice, provide appropriate skills and confidence building activities, and enable them to become active citizens.

We also support the development of strong and vibrant community groups and organisations so that they are more able to represent and provide appropriate activities for their members. So if you are starting up a small grass roots project in the city which will benefit asylum seekers and/or refugees we may be able to help you with some funding.  Please contact Debbie Royle Partnership Development Coordinator on 0750 8322278 or email Debbie.royle@nottsrefugeeforum.org.uk to talk more about this.
