Resettlement Programmes

Since 2016, our resettlement programmes have been providing support for refugee families as they resettle across four districts in East Lancashire. 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.

A drop-in service has been set up in partnership with voluntary and faith groups in each district. These sessions offer bespoke support to refugees including those seeking asylum or still awaiting a decision.

We have established excellent working relationships with housing departments, social housing providers, private landlords, jobcentres, work coaches and employment and training providers.
