Support for newly arrived Afghan refugees

In 2021, ACH Birmingham began an extension of our current services (detailed above) to support newly arrived people from Afghanistan build ambitious and independent lives here in the UK.

In 2021, ACH Bristol began working with the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) team to provide a comprehensive package of support to newly arrived Afghan refugees. Through weekly 1-2-1 support sessions and separate group sessions with our Careers Advisors, Business Consultants, and the Bristol DWP team we have been providing vital integration support.

Our support includes:

  • Careers and Employment advice – support with job searches, applications, and understanding the UK labour market
  • Help exploring self-employment and entrepreneurship
  • How to access public services – such as health and mental health support
  • How to receive support and help for domestic violence
  • Help with any other integration or wellbeing needs

We are looking forward to continue working with the DWP team to prepare further support activities.
