Community Development

Our community development project works with refugee communities to help them organise and work together to improve the quality of community life. We believe that it is important for policy and decision-makers to listen to refugee communities in UK. We work with groups to help them develop a collective voice, and take action to meet the needs of their wider communities. Our work in this area also boosts cohesion and cooperation between and among Manchester’s rich and diverse communities.
We work alongside local development workers and other capacity building agencies to achieve this. We also work to influence policy and strategy in this area alongside other partners.

We work with over 40 refugee organisations in Greater Manchester.

We publish a bi-monthly newsletter on issues affecting asylum seekers and refugees including funding news, job opportunities, events, training and volunteering opportunities as well as project news of our organisation.

We provide meeting room space and access to IT resources for Refugee Community Organisations.

Monday to Friday: (Drop-in and by appointments)
