New Routes Integration
New Routes Integration in Norwich is a vital source of community and support for asylum seekers, refugees and isolated migrants of all ages.
Thanks to the generosity of the local community, and the dedication of volunteers, the team at New Routes Integration has been able to expand their services to adapt to the coronavirus pandemic. Online English classes, schoolwork support and socially distanced mentoring are especially important to isolated migrants, asylum seekers and refugees as they help to support their education and integration into the local community.
Funding from the NET Coronavirus Appeal through the Norfolk Community Foundation has helped New Routes Integration to deliver on-line English classes, and provide monthly cleaning, personal care packs and mobile top-ups for vulnerable asylum seekers living on £37 per week. The move to remote services has meant that these mobile top-ups are vital, enabling recipients to access New Routes’ online services and to reach other support organisations.
