ACH was established in 2008 as a social enterprise specialising in integrating refugees through accommodation, support and community-based training.
We provide safe, secure and comfortable housing combined with culturally sensitive support and employability skills training. Our unique approach focuses on building individuals’ resilience in the labour market, upskilling and supporting refugees into sustainable, higher-level employment in order to develop their independence and ease their integration into UK life.
We have successfully resettled 2500 individuals from refugee backgrounds in this time and are now one of the UK’s leading providers of resettlement services for refugee and newly arrived communities in the UK. We operate in Bristol, Birmingham and Wolverhampton, and are aiming to work with 25,000 more people over the next 10 years.
