Resettlement Programmes

Since 2016, our resettlement programmes have been providing support for refugee families as they resettle across Burnley, Hyndburn, Preston, Pendle, Blackburn with Darwen, South Ribble, and Rossendale. All members of our resettlement team have either a housing qualification or are qualified social workers.

Our resettlement programmes are person-centred and prioritise what is important to each individual, helping them achieve planned outcomes. This can include, helping individuals settle and integrate in their new community, secure long-term accommodation and live independently in a healthy and safe environment.
