The NEW ROOTS service offers a holistic approach to supporting refugees with integration across Leeds and West Yorkshire.
PATH Yorkshire is working in partnership
with Leeds Refugee Council and RETAS
in 3 stages, with flexible entry points:

PATH Yorkshire will support with the Aspire aspect of the service which will comprise of:
Employer visits: A short tour of a company or business with a brief Q & A session . The visit would provide an introduction to the British workplace.
