Students and Refugees Together (START)
At START our work aims to support refugees to reduce the impact and isolation they feel coming to live in Plymouth in a number of different ways.
We offer holistic support either by working on a one to one basis or through community activities.
Our team also advocate and assists refugees to live within new communities or to move to new geographical locations.
We provide various community activities that promote recreation and other leisure time occupations within the refugee communities.
These activities seek to reduce social isolation, promote healthy living and create volunteering opportunities.
The aspect of our work linked with universities advances the education of students in training by providing learning experiences, which contribute to their personal and professional development.
