The training will prepare people to become ‘community peer navigators’ and help them to develop their skills and knowledge. Our training follows an asset-based development approach that means we focus on developing people’s strengths. Next to the training we support our ‘peer navigators’ into volunteer placements at a local organisation of their choice where they can put what they have learnt into practice, gain new valuable experiences and built networks. Training and volunteering provide people with more options for their personal and professional development as well as their local engagement and connections. The MRSN Health and Well-being project is set up to provide support to this marginalised and vulnerable group. In light of this, it's important people have chance to gather together and take part in a sport together. Once a week, people meet to play football together. GREAT (Greater Manchester Refugees and Asylum Seekers Together) is our expert by experience forum. The Greater Manchester Refugee Step Change Consortium is a pioneering initiative by nine charities and Experts by Experience (EBE) to transform into a joined-up and collaborative ecosystem of support for refugees and people seeking asylum in Greater Manchester.

The Broughton Trust

Last updated 19/05/24

"The Broughton Trust provides services for refugees and asylum seekers across Salford. We provide a one to one assessment process to plan a bespoke learning and support programme for ESOL learners. The wide range of courses in their ESOL programme are non-accredited and delivered in a community setting to reduce anxiety and increase participation, creating pathways to employment and qualifications. Learning support workers work closely with each individual to identify skill gaps and other non-academic support needed. Information advice and guidance sessions are provided throughout the process and by working with outside organisations through a signposting/referral system. Employment Support: In partnership with a range of employers and training providers we provide a pathway into meaningful employment for the unqualified, unskilled and inexperienced, particularly in fields such as construction, hospitality and personal services. We offer a range of services from job clubs, pre-employment training and work sampling all underpinned by 1:1 support. We contact some of the most difficult to track and place young adults (the ‘invisible’) who are on no-one’s register, who claim no benefits and who live outside the system. Our successes have been recognised by contracts with a number of partners and in 2018 we placed over 60 adults into sustained (over 6 months) permanent full-time jobs."
