ThE programme is open to asylum seekers and refugees who have been in the UK less than 24 months. Food is provided and we are able to provide £2 travel expenses for each participant on each day.

Steps to Settlement:

–          involves fundamental steps towards successful integration and settlement in Leeds. The 10 week programme involves 20 refugees taking four steps: Sanctuary, Serenity, Skills and Settlement

–          Within each step a diverse range of compulsory modules will be delivered, focusing on english language, well-being, confidence building, digital learning, financially sustainable living and employability.

–          Takes place at RETAS on Mondays and Tuesdays – only 20 refugees are available for each programme, so bookings must be made first
