Education is an essential tool to empower vulnerable refugees and their families, enabling them to integrate, find work and rebuild their lives. We're committed to research, fundraising, policy and youth engagement to help refugees and migrants access the education they need to thrive.

Speaking English is essential for integration, empowerment and economic opportunity in the UK, our 2016 report revealed that vulnerable refugee women living here face significant barriers to learning the language.
