Refugees & Mentors is a social enterprise.

We offer pre-employment information, guidance, and encouragement to refugees and migrants.

We are based in Manchester. Our services work with people living in different locations:

  • Mentoring Project – Manchester or Salford.
  • Returner Project – Greater Manchester, and engineers further afield.
  • Rainbow Haven Work Club – for people living in Greater Manchester.

Key to our work is our ability to work in partnership with employers and organisations supporting refugees.

Our sustainability depends on our ability to generate income but also on receiving donations and grants.
