Life in the UK- A refugee resettlement event

Join us on Wednesday 22nd June to hear more about the dedicated work the Julian House Refugee Resettlement team in Bath.

Learn more about the challenges faced by the families as they resettle into the UK, speak to the resettlement team, watch a short documentary; Adnan and sample the delicious Syrian food prepared by one of the families we are supporting.

Directed by Mark Arrigo and Steven Chatterton, ‘Adnan’ is the story of an imaginative ten year old Syrian refugee boy who has had to flee his home country with his mother after the rest of their family were killed and their neighbourhood destroyed. Now settled in the UK, he must use all his creativity to break through his mother’s PTSD or risk losing her forever.

The Julian House Refugee Resettlement team based in Bath offers to support families resettled through the government UK Resettlement Scheme (UKRS) and Afghan Relocation and Assistance Policy (ARAP) schemes. These schemes exist to enable the resettlement of families and individuals who have been identified by the United Nations as some of the most vulnerable people. The project which is commissioned by B&NES council currently works with Syrian and Afghan families, supporting them to rebuild their lives in the UK.

The main goal of this service is to empower families to live independently, as such the support we offer reduces over time as families learn the language, engage in the community, find employment, and live happy and fulfilled lives in the UK.

Whilst the event is free to enter, any donations would be very welcome to cover the costs. Register below and join us Wednesday 22nd June 6pm – 8pm at Widcombe Social Club.
