In September 2015, the Government committed to bringing 20,000 vulnerable Syrian refugees into the UK by 2020 under the SVPR scheme.

The scheme is an international collaboration between the UNHCR, Home Office, IOM, local authorities and organisations like Migrant Help.

Migrant Help currently provides this service in East Kent.

We support the individuals and families during the process of settling down in their new communities, learning English, accessing healthcare, education, employment opportunities and other local services.

We facilitate referrals to specialist services to help those who struggle with the traumatic experiences they faced before coming to the country.

Our dedicated advisers work closely with other agencies, both statutory and voluntary, as well as local community groups, as we believe that this approach gives the clients the best start of their new life in the UK.

"We were very pleased with the past year and wish that the coming years will be as good as this one. You all were the reason behind our happiness. We wholeheartedly thank the UK government and the British people for their help and for hosting us in their country." Mahmoud and family
