Help refugees to build a new life

The potential of businesses to support refugees into meaningful employment is limitless. We are proud of our growing community of business partnerships. Some partners directly hire refugees. Others provide work placements, develop bespoke recruitment pathways, or fund our work. Highly engaged employees also use their skills to volunteer directly with refugees.
