The UK government has committed itself to a Vulnerable Persons Relocation Scheme whereby people fleeing persecution from Syria are selected and processed in the region of origin and brought to the UK with their status already determined. Under this scheme a specific quota of refugees will be coming to the UK for resettlement.
The resettlement team provides advice and support for resettled refugees to help them access services and mainstream provision, and establish community links. Working closely with local stakeholders and in partnership with other voluntary sector agencies running similar services across the UK, the Refugee Council resettlement team promotes both the integration and independence of this group.
The Therapeutic Services offers time limited, crises intervention therapeutic services to asylum seekers and refugees presenting with mental wellbeing needs. Our services include one to one wellbeing assessments, referrals and therapeutic counselling. The team has adapted the Therapeutic Care Service model of working in addressing the complex and multifaceted needs of our clients within a holistic approach.
Closing date: 29 May 2017
