Refugee Week is a UK-wide festival celebrating the contributions, creativity and resilience of refugees, this year it takes place between 15th and 21st June. At TDC we are proud to support Brighton’s refugee community and this week we come together with them in celebration and solidarity.
We deliver a range of services to Brighton’s refugees, asylum-seekers, vulnerable migrants, and others of BAMER heritage. Support provided by our MESH (Migrant ESOL Support Hub) and SPP (Social Prescribing Plus) caseworkers throughout the Covid-19 crisis includes well-being check-ins, food bank referrals, digital inclusion provision, free furniture delivery, financial, benefits, housing and health advice and referrals, access to online courses and groups, as well as facilitating our own online ESOL courses, as clients have lost their college based English tuition due to lockdown.
TDC staff are also working alongside the Sussex Syrian Community Group, the Oromo Women’s Group, the Bangladeshi Women’s Group and the Chinese Elders. As we put it in our values – Diversity is our strength.
