Suffolk Refugee Support was established in 1999 by local volunteers after identifying a large amount of support that was needed for the growing refugee and asylum seeker population in the area.
The charity’s main areas of work are a drop-in advice service, employment and training work, English classes, youth work, refugee resettlement programme casework, an International Women’s Group and a Sports Activities Group. As well as delivering these services, the organisation works to regularly evaluate its work through funder reports, client, staff and trustee feedback and by identifying ongoing client needs and developing work strategies to meet these needs.
Over the last year they have delivered more than 6000 individual advice sessions, supporting over 1000 people from 35 different countries. They deliver these services through a committed staff team and around 90 volunteers who add value to their projects. With the support of a range of funders and individual donors they continue to grow and deliver this amazing work.
