Canterbury City Council are working in close partnership with Canterbury Welcomes Refugees and the resettled families are benefiting from this. We have worked together to provide needs-led ESOL provision, to supplement sessions run by Kent Adult Education. We collaborate on initiatives, police and risk assessments and this has led to really consistent approach for all the families. As a council we have benefitted from the expertise and skills of the volunteers that CWR recruits and they are generous in supporting council resettled families in addition to their own.
