Refugee Crisis Europe

We are currently living in the world’s worst refugee crisis since World War 2.  Greece and Italy are at the front-line of the world’s biggest wave of mass-migration of refugees and we have been campaigning and fundraising to support the humanitarian effort there since 2015.

Cool reaction to £8m ethnic housing boost

In our first year as a registered charity, we successfully lobbied Scottish Homes to recognise the needs of ethnic minority tenants. As a result of this pressure, the agency set up a PATH training scheme to help 12 ethnic minority trainees pursue a career in housing, appointed their first race equality officer, and committed £8 million to ethnic minority housing.
