Community

RR provides community assistance and support to improve lives and promote aspirations of refugees, asylum seekers and immigrants, in particular but not exclusively Syrians and other Arabic speakers in the UK. RR has established an advice service that provides support with benefits, job searches, and immigration matters, thus working to improve the economic and social well-being of British Syrian residents and immigrants from other countries, helping them to become self-reliant in their new country. RR also brings the Syrian community together during these difficult times experienced in their mother country through organising social gatherings and monthly seminars that promote constructive discussions. Our activities are open to the public and are highly successful in bringing the Syrian community together with the wider community.
