In 2018 Treebeard Trust started to invest in work concerning refugees and asylum seekers. We are focused on supporting sustainable, transformative and long-term solutions, namely for individuals affected by forced migration. We are also keen to support work driving the gathering and dissemination of data and evidence regarding refugees and asylum seekers; although our investment in this area is recent, we can already see that this has a highly practical and effective use in creating consensus, improving collaboration and in influencing government and NGO responses, public awareness and the media - all factors key to creating systemic change in this field.



Investment Type: Impact Only Investment

More people are moving than ever before. Many people are moving because they are forced to. When arriving in a new community or country people who have been forced to flee their home face huge challenges in accessing education and employment. There are few initiatives successfully providing long-term solutions to forced migration meaning those forced to flee end up dependent on aid and handouts.

RefuAid focuses on three key barriers to access for refugees with leave to remain, trying to restart their life in the UK: finance and re-qualification, language tuition and specialist employment advice. RefuAid solutions have proved both sustainable and successful.
