'One Plus One' - New Report aims to improve service for refugees

14 Jul 2010 - 15:53 by mike.wright

With funding from Capacitybuilders' National Support Service Programme the Women's Resource Centre is launching new guidance to help frontline charities be more accessible to refugees.

'One Plus One' is aimed at support providers and gives examples of good practice to help reduce barriers to service.

The research has been developed by Refugees in Effective and Active Partnership (REAP) with support from WRC in its role as lead partner in the National Equality Partnership (NEP)

Head of National Equality Partnership at WRC, Karen Constantine, says:

" These recommendations will help improve the lives of refugees and asylum seekers and make frontline charities and voluntary organisations more effective at tackling discrimination. Support providers can lead by example. They play a valuable role in encouraging frontline organisations to be more accessible and provide more effective services."

The report is available on Capacitybuilders' Improving Support website: www.improvingsupport.org.uk and WRC's website: www.wrc.org.uk
