Resettlement Worker Bassetlaw and South Yorkshire (Sheffield) - Refugee Council

Resettlement Worker Bassetlaw and South Yorkshire (Sheffield)

The UK government’s resettlement programmes (such as the Vulnerable Persons Relocation Scheme) supports refugees who 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 Refugee Council resettlement team provides advice and support for resettled refugees to help them adjust to live in the UK, 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, the Refugee Council resettlement team promotes both the integration and independence of this group. This post will work with refugees at different stages of the resettlement programme including those who have newly arrived and others who have lived in the UK for up to 5 years.

The Refugee Council has agreed to work in partnership with Migration Yorkshire and Local Authorities across Yorkshire and Humberside to deliver the regional programme. This post will report to the Area Manager in Hull.
