Together South works to support refugees and migrants in Hastings & Rother, helping them to connect with and thrive in their communities by providing English language lessons, employment advice and cultural insights.

Together South is part of Groundwork’s TOGETHER programme, a collection of projects delivered by Groundwork London and Groundwork South which support refugees and migrants to settle into life in the UK.

We would like to take the opportunity to extend our heartfelt thanks to those of you who have supported us over the past three and a half years. Thank you for referring participants, funding us and engaging with our programme. You helped us reach 466 refugees and migrants across Kent and East Sussex in assisting their integration into new communities. We provided nearly 4,000 English, employment or cultural insights sessions and connected participants to many relevant local organisations. We could not have done this without you.

The aim of the programme is to support refugees and settled migrants in Hastings and Rother, by helping them to connect with and thrive in their communities by providing English language lessons.
