Reach In aims to develop closer relationships between housing providers and refugee communities by facilitating and supporting volunteer work placements for refugees in a housing provider and other housing sector organisations.
We are now recruiting for the next phase of the Reach In Programme starting in August 2013. The closing date for applications in this phase will be 28 June 3013. Applications will be considered on arrival, therfore early applications are more likely to secure a placement.
These webpages are designed to give refugees based in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool and Newcastle all the required information about the Reach In programme and how to apply for a volunteer placement position.
There are currently a number of refugee work placement programmes in the UK. Find out how Reach In will support your specific requirements.
The Reach In project is currently only available to a certain criteria of refugees.
If you are eligible to apply, here you can find out how to submit an application for our consideration.
Here we have collated some questions that we have recieved from past particpants. If you have a query after reading through the above sections, it will hopefully be addressed here.
