Groundwork in London


This project is part funded by the EU Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund. Making management of migration flows more efficient across the European Union.

We also run the IMPACT programme in Bristol.

We are working to help refugees and non-EU migrants connect with and thrive in their communities through a holistic programme called ‘IMPACT’. The programme has been developed and is now being implemented by Groundwork through the support of the EU Asylum, migration & integration fund (AMIF) from January 2020 until December 2022.

Focus areas:

We aim to provide a relaxed and friendly environment to support refugees and non-EU migrants in Westminister, Kensington & Chelsea or Hammersmith & Fulham to build their confidence and gain useful skills for their life in the U.K. There are three strands to the project:

  • Language: Our conversational English language classes are an opportunity for refugees and non-EU migrants to practise their English whilst discussing diverse topics.
  • Preparation for work: We provide employability skills training, careers advice and pastoral care to support refugees and non-EU migrants to access employment, education and training. We do this through 121 and group sessions via Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG).
  • Culture: Our creative workshops bring people together through community activities to promote inter-cultural understanding, practise English, meet friends and build confidence. Activities will be “green” and focus on the theme “Create and Communicate”, including gardening, cooking, arts, crafts, etc.
