September 26 2009
A new service to help refugees into employment and training has started in the capital London Refugee Economic Action (LORECA), a pan-London project that helps refugees to enter employment, training and enterprise, was launched on 12th October at the Design Museum, and brought together 115 representatives from government, employers, professional associations, trade unions and refugee community organisations. LORECA operates through a partnership comprising: Off the Streets and into Work (the lead partner - OSW), the Refugee Council, Refugee Women's Association, UK NARIC, and Resource Information Service (associate partner). Andy Burnham MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State with responsibility for refugee integration, delivered the keynote address, stating: "The Home Office is committed to facilitating the economic integration of refugees in London and around the UK. I wish LORECA every success in bringing coordination and strategic leadership to the many organisations concerned with the employability of refugees in London."
