Bath: rethinking refugees as assets

Rethinking Refugees as Assets

The past two years have been tumultuous ones, with unprecedented numbers of refugees entering the region, further austerity measures and the Brexit vote. With further arrivals from Syria expected soon a way ahead is needed.

On Monday 3rd April, Ashley Community Housing are holding a Rethinking Refugee event at The Guildhall in Bath. At this event they will share their experience of refugee resettlement and reintegration. Presentations and discussions will cover the untapped economic potential of the refugee asset within the region, and how to rethink refugees as assets rather than liabilities.

Warm words are not enough. Practical actions are needed here in Bath now. Ashley Community Housing has been working in refugee resettlement in the West of England since 2008, and believe their combination of understanding, experience and technical knowledge allows them to make a unique contribution.

By attempting to understand the best ways to resettle refugees the aim is to generate new ideas which can turn current humanitarian challenges into sustainable opportunities.
