PRO – Plymouth Refugee Opportunities
Information and support for newly* recognised refugees in Plymouth.
Plymouth Refugee Opportunities (PRO) is a service for newly* recognised refugees in Plymouth, United Kingdom.
We help to prepare, organise and support refugees with housing, employment and community integration.
Can I use this service?
*The PRO programme is open to anyone who has been granted refugee status in the last 18 months, having previously received Sec 95 asylum support.
You must be willing to take active steps towards securing work.
Unfortunately, this programme cannot help you if you came to the UK by resettlement or family reunion.
Please ask us about other help you can get.
