Purpose Upbeat Communities provides support to refugees at different stages of their journeys.

We address the needs of those newly arrived in the UK, as well as supporting those that have been through the asylum process and have been granted refugee status.

We also provide advice and guidance to other organisations and faith groups around the UK to help them identify how they can best meet the needs of refugees in their own communities.
Services Welcome Boxes - our trained volunteers visit newly arrived refugees and deliver a welcome box, filled with small gifts and useful information. The volunteers offer friendship and support to those seeking asylum, helping them with things like registering with a GP or finding their way around their new city.

English Classes - not being able to speak English is one of the biggest barriers to integration for refugees. We offer a variety of classes, from beginners English right through to high level courses for those wanting to get into university or work in a medical profession.

Community Integration Activities - we offer a wide range of opportunities for refugees and local people to come together in a shared space, to take part in activities together, learn from each other and build friendships. Activities include sports, arts, health and wellbeing, a parent and toddlers group, cultural visits and community meals.
