Together South works to support refugees and non-EU migrants in Hastings & Rother, helping them to connect with and thrive in their communities by providing English language lessons, employment advice and community activities. All activities the programme offers are free of charge. 

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.

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

We also run the TOGETHER South programme in London & Kent

Focus Areas:

The aim of the programme is to support 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 helps participants to communicate more easily with UK citizens, and access services.
  • CULTURE: In partnership with The Refugee Buddy Project, refugees and migrants take part in community activities alongside UK citizens to promote inter-cultural understanding and help participants to make friends in their local community.
  • PREPARATION FOR WORK: Participants are offered employable skills training, careers advice and pastoral care via Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG).
