Supporting refugees, asylum seekers and other vulnerable migrants into education, employment and entrepreneurship
Unleashing Refugee Potential (URP LEEDS) is a refugee-led social enterprise. We provide a bespoke support service to refugees, asylum seekers and other vulnerable migrants. We support young refugees and asylum seekers along their educational journey through Thriving Families. We also provide a specialised employability and business service for refugees looking to work or set up their own business.
WHO we support
Giving people purpose. Solving Big Problems.
Our mission is to promote and commit to the integration of refugees and migrants who passed through the asylum process, particularly through creating employment and/or self-employment opportunities.
Why we are different
Our social enterprise is not simply helping people to open small businesses and get employed; but simultaneously enabling better community integration. We are different because:
- We offer a free initial advice
- We promote and working together to nurture employment/self-employment which capitalizes up on refugee’s prior skills and knowledge, income generation, language acquisition, and community integration.
- Our service is based on a well researched project with an overall social return on investment (SROI) of £1: £4.06.
