It was a huge honour to be have been awarded the Inclusive Employment Award at the Lord Mayor’s Dragon Awards for our collaboration with international law firm Mayer Brown.
Our Employment Academy works with employers to provide refugees with training and work placements to support their start into work.
Matthew Powell, Breaking Barriers’ CEO: “We are hugely privileged to have been awarded such a prestigious award. Mayer Brown have been such incredible support as a Founding Partner of the programme and we wouldn’t have achieved what we have without them.”
“I hope this award goes a long way to raising the awareness to businesses of the benefits and opportunities of hiring refugees”.
