Integration of resettled refugees

The Gateway Protection Refugees’ Community Forum – “When we are together we are one”

The Gateway Protection Refugees’ Community Forum was set up to bring together the crosssection of resettled refugees living in Sheffield, UK. Liberian, Congolese, Karen, Burmese, Somali and Iraqi refugees all contribute to the Forum to share their experiences, address common issues, find support, and build relationships across cultural divides. The Forum meets every month in facilities offered by a local community association. The forum has over 400 members and a management committee, which reflects the diverse demographic of the resettled refugee community in Sheffield.
