Supporting the employability and entrepreneurship of refugee professionals and those migrants who passed through the asylum-seeking process.
What we do
Unleashing Refugee Potential (URP LEEDS) provides a bespoke support service to Refugees for employment and setting up their own businesses and helps businesses with employee opportunities.
WHO CAN WE HELP
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.
