About Us

Ashley Community Housing (ACH) was established in 2008 as a social enterprise specialising in the economic, social and civic integration of refugees through accommodation and community based training support. We have successfully resettled over 2000 individuals from refugee backgrounds in this time.

Our #RethinkingRefugee programme is considered outstanding and reflects our commitment to making sure refugees become part of society rather than remaining marginalised and under-employed.
