Vulnerable Persons’ Resettlement Programme

Our Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Programme supports newly arrived refugee families into accommodation.

To support our new arrivals in integrating effectively into the community, we:

  • Provide in-house ESOL classes by qualified tutor Martin Biddle for our Nottingham & Newark clients.
  • Ensure all clients are registered with the GP within the first 2 weeks of arriving.
  • Apply for all the benefits they require in the first week of arriving, and an appointment with Jobcentre Plus  is booked to help them secure a job.
  • Arrange a bank account appointment in the first week of arrival.

Since 30th June 2016 we have received 3 families in September, 6 families in November and 5 in March. 4 of these families were supported by NNRF in Newark.
