New Business Support for Refugee Entrepreneurs.

Well-being & Work for Refugee Integration Programme

MENTA is delighted to be part of the wider AMIF-funded programme, Well-being & Work for Refugee Integration, launched on 1st September 2020.

This followed on from our work on the Refugee Entrepreneur Project which ended in October 2020.  Background to the  Refugee Entrepreneur Project

In early 2020, MENTA started working on a new initiative with the Centre for Entrepreneurs. It was this project, which was part of the government’s commitment to increase integration support for all refugees in the UK, with a key focus on employment and self-employment. It has proven to be a positive way for refugees to showcase their abundance of skills and talents, and for the local community to assist in their integration. The first project concluded in October 2020.
