The project will also create new local connections, with opportunities for local people to be volunteer mentors and befrienders, and for employers to provide work placements to help people get a foothold in the job market.
Connecting Opportunities is a regional project with 10 partner organisations who understand the barriers migrants face in the UK.
Partners: Migration Yorkshire, PATH Yorkshire, Halifax Opportunities Trust, Horton Housing, Touchstone, Women Centre, Touchstone, The Children’s Society, Nova/Dominion Training, Leeds Asylum Seekers’ Support Network, Solace Surviving Exile and Persecution.
