Refugees have been identified as one of the most unemployed and underemployed groups in the UK and at the Forum we see this in action every day. But we also know that employment is one of the best ways to empower people and help them to integrate, reducing mental health problems, preventing isolation, improving language and supporting skill development.
The support we provide is tailored to individual needs and aims to help refugees navigate UK processes and overcome barriers in order to reach their career and education goals more quickly. In addition we hold regular employability workshops so look out for the latest sessions which can be booked through General Advice.
To be eligible refugees must:
- Have the right to work
- Be registered with the Job Centre
- Be 16 – 29 and not in full-time education
