Corporate and Business Partnership Opportunities

Could you support refugees?

The New Roots project provides help and support to refugees across the Yorkshire region to improve their skills towards gaining sustainable employment.

We are seeking for corporate and business partners who could:

  • deliver an online talk about what its like to work in your company or sector
  • host a virtual tour of your workplace which to provide a better understanding of the world of work to jobseekers who are not familiar with UK work places.

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