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 are working to help refugees and non-EU migrants connect with and thrive in their communities through a holistic programme called ‘Together South’.

The programme has been developed and is now being implemented by Groundwork through the support of the EU Asylum, migration & integration fund (AMIF) until December 2022. The areas this programme covers are Hastings & Rother.

Focus Areas:

The aim of the programme is to assist refugees and settled non-EU migrants in Hastings & Rother to integrate into UK society by focusing on 3 key areas:

  • LANGUAGE: Conversational English language support will help participants to communicate more easily with UK citizens, and access services.
  • CULTURE: Refugees and migrants will take part in community activities alongside UK citizens to promote inter-cultural understanding. Activities will be ‘green’ and focus on the theme ‘Make & Create’.
  • PREPARATION FOR WORK: Participants will be offered employable skills training, careers advice and pastoral care via Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG).
