This project aims to strengthen refugee community organisations (RCOs) and diaspora groups and communities that support refugees and vulnerable migrants in Oxfordshire.

We know that helping refugees to run their own vibrant community organisations is one of the best ways of ensuring that they receive long-term support. Refugee-led community organisations help communities to reduce isolation, socialise, resolve difficulties collectively and are a platform for celebrating different cultures. If you want to develop a refugee community group then we can help you! You can see the groups that we are already working with here (link to page with RCOs)
