'Welcome to Sheffield: Reflections on 8 years experience of receiving resettled refugees at the local level'

In 2004, Sheffield became the first UK city to receive resettled refugees.  Since then, 640 refugees – from Liberia, Congo, Burma, Bhutan, Iraq and Somalia – have found safety, security and a new home in the city. ‘Welcome to Sheffield’ describes how strong local partnerships - between the city, its NGO and civil society partners and Sheffield citizens - have contributed to the ongoing success and growth of the Sheffield resettlement programme. 

‘Welcome to Sheffield’ also profiles resettlement in the UK Yorkshire and Humber region in which Sheffield is located, including via contributions from resettled refugees themselves, and provides top tips for ‘doing’ resettlement at the local level in areas including planning, arrival and reception, support for integration and working with local media.  It includes case studies and personal reflections from refugees resettled to the UK, including those from Congo, Iraq, Burma and Somalia.

If your city or town is thinking about receiving resettled refugees in the future, if there is a national resettlement programme established in your country, or if your country is considering establishing a programme in the near future, then this publication is for you!
