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.
