Business Behind Refugees

A movement of businesses united and committed to improving the lives of refugees in the UK through meaningful employment

Share this

Businesses Behind Refugees pledge to support refugees through supporting the work of Breaking Barriers and hiring refugees into job opportunities within their own businesses.

As a part of the Business Behind Refugees movement, you will have access to a range of specialist workshops, networking events, guidance, and opportunities to share best practices and insights on how to unlock refugee talent.

Hear from our partners:

I know first-hand the challenges faced by those looking to establish a new life of safety and belonging. Refugees are too often undervalued, underrepresented and overlooked. Yet, there is a huge amount of talent and potential waiting to be unlocked. I believe the private sector can, and must, play a role in helping refugees to find meaningful employment. We have an economic and moral responsibility.

Hani Kablawi, Chairman of International at BNY Mellon
