Refugees and asylum seekers, particularly those from developing countries, face many challenges on arrival in the UK. A large number have fled conflict or persecution which has left them traumatised. The process of applying for asylum, especially for those who have had little or no formal education, can be very complex and stressful. It can also take many months, mean access to public funds and services is restricted and result in poor living conditions, poverty and homelessness. In addition social and cultural differences and limited or no understanding of English create barriers can have a serious and negative effect upon recently arrived migrants, discouraging them from participating in the life of the community.
New Era Volunteers is working to assist African migrants make the transition to life in the UK. This is done by providing courses where the basics of living in Britain are explained. Support, advice and guidance is offered through a course which includes group sessions for men, women and young people. The aim is to help them rebuild their lives and integrate into British society through discussion and the sharing of personal experiences. Among the topics are gender relations, women’s rights, safeguarding, resolving disputes with neighbours, shoplifting and other anti-social behaviour and drug and alcohol abuse.
NEV also arranges home visits, offering a chance for participants to follow up topics discussed in the course and for the wellbeing of those who have attended to be assessed. Opportunity is given to discuss concerns on a one-to-one basis, encouragement offered to seek advice from relevant agencies and, where appropriate, the importance of ‘breaking the silence’ emphasised. Training is offered in English and French as well as some African vernacular languages, experience having shown that migrants are more comfortable with others who have come from a similar background and have a common language and understanding.
