Tue, 19/02/2008

This initiative has been set up with the Home Office and the European Refugee Fund to encourage refugees in England to set up projects that will make their communities a healthier, happier, safer and more just place. UnLtd will be giving awards of between £500 and £5,000 to help individuals and small groups of refugees from anywhere in England to turn their ideas into reality. UnLtd will provide dedicated support including training opportunities and tools and resources to help refugees develop their skills and initiatives. The scheme aims to fund and support more than 75 refugees over two years and will benefit over 2,000 people in the community.  The deadline is ongoing.
