Could you support refugees into work?


Refugees with the right to work face multiple barriers gaining access to employment.  PATH Yorkshire are looking for employers who want to help.

Could you:
– deliver a talk about what its like to work in your sector?
– host a group visit at your workplace?
– offer a short work placement (2-6 weeks) for a refugee?

Your help could be a stepping stone to permanent work, stability and the self sufficiency that refugees are looking for.

Take the next step and contact our New Roots team at PATH Yorkshire to discuss how we can help you to support refugees.
