Preparing for Change: Cultural Orientation

Gateway Online Forum (GOLF)

The Gateway Online Forum is an internet based resource enabling the exchange of experiences and knowledge between people at different stages of the resettlement process. It aims to give refugees a realistic idea of life in the UK and to exchange useful tips and information about the UK as a country of resettlement. Refugees’ in the country of asylum, waiting to be resettled, who have access to the internet, can ask questions of already resettled refugees. They can also refer to relevant information placed on the Forum by NGO staff, volunteers and refugees themselves.
