Community Integration and Cohesion
Our Community Integration and cohesion team supports individuals and families who have just arrived in the UK to properly integrate into the community by signposting people and helping them access health, education, employment, finding housing and shopping centres. Our team also create programmes that showcases different cultures, so people can share their culture and experiences, learn, and appreciate diversity.
