Celebrating Refugee week 2022 in Kirklees
Refugee Week is always a great opportunity to not only celebrate the amazing achievements of the people we support, but also the amazing work that Kirklees organisations, staff and volunteers do throughout the year to make a difference to those who arrive in Kirklees.
TSL Kirklees is celebrating Refugee Week 2022 with Fnan’s Story showing how he has been welcomed into the community and supported by a partnership of local third sector organisations and other local services – known as #KirkleesWelcomes. With their help he received his official refugee status during Refugee Week 2021, and he is now settled, working and giving back by volunteering as a TSL Kirklees Welcome Mentor.
Fnan was supported by a number of organisations on his arrival including:
- DASH Huddersfield
- Kirklees Active Leisure
- Sanctuary Kirklees
- Kirklees Library
- Jubilee Centre
