The Refugee Council uses the expertise of our delivery staff who work directly with asylum-seekers, newly recognized refugees, and those arriving through resettlement schemes, to develop training that’s relevant, up to date, and informed by best practice. We’ve delivered expert training to over 55 local authorities and a variety of charities on topics relating to asylum and refugee awareness, policy, and best practice.
Those interested in, or new to working in, the Refugee sector.
Claiming Asylum and seeking support as a newly recognized Refugee are complex processes, and at times are tasks that can seem insurmountable. For those interested or new to working in the sector, our half-day introduction to asylum and supporting refugees covers what we consider to be the must-knows. Informed by the work of front-line staff, we walk participants through the journeys and potential experiences of clients prior to and after arrival in the UK, exploring terms and definitions, and key considerations for enabling positive employment and integration.
Aims and objectives
- Key definitions within the Asylum and Refugee experience
- Barriers and enablers to integration and employment
- An overview of mental health support, and warning indicators of poor mental health
- Best practice when working with refugees”
