RISE, supporting refugees

Our projects

Helping refugees to find work

RISE is designed to support communities, families and individuals to gain the tools and skills necessary to find and sustain jobs they value – supporting increased confidence and wellbeing.

RISE is supported through the Building Better Opportunities (BBO) programme, which is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund (ESF).

Building Better Opportunities sees the Big Lottery Fund matching funds from European Social Fund (ESF) 2014 – 2020, to provide joint investment in local projects that tackle poverty and promote social inclusion.
