Back to What We've Funded

Manchester Refugee Support Network

As part of an Emergency Response grant, we funded a post which supports people who have previously had no recourse to public funds but have now been granted ‘Leave to Remain’.

People in this situation have 28 days to find new accommodation, so this is a crucial time to ensure they do not end up rough sleeping.

Below is just one example of the families this service supports:

Kia, aged 23 is a single mother to a child aged 19 months and was granted leave to remain during the COVID-19 pandemic. At the time Kia needed support she was living in unfit accommodation, filled with damp and infested with cockroaches and mice.

MRSN advocated on Kia’s behalf and helped her to find suitable safe accommodation, register with a GP, apply for Universal Credit, set up a bank account as well as providing much-needed emotional support.

Although Kia and her daughter are now living safely in a furnished 2 bedroom property, they are removed from their local support networks. They are still being supported by MRSN with the hope they can move back to Manchester.

Kia is also keen to access education opportunities once a nursery placement can be found.
