A programme to help integrate 200 refugees into life in Britain is launching this month.
Groundwork London’s two-year scheme Circle will run language and employment skill classes and culture sharing activities like cooking, gardening and carpentry from a base in Lower Clapton Road.
It has received over £300,000 of funding from AMIF (The Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund) set up by the European Commission.
A spokesperson said: “During consultations with refugees and refugee organisations it was clear there is a need for more integration support.
“Seeking refuge is a last resort for people who have had to leave their homes due to fear of persecution.
