Stepping Up to Integrate Refugees In the UK

The UK has welcomed more than 500,000 refugees in recent years – including approximately half from Ukraine. Despite ongoing political tensions, businesses across the country are stepping up to hire, train, and mentor refugees – a critical step towards accelerating their economic integration in the UK.

Companies Across the UK Are Stepping Up

Dozens of leading companies have already joined Tent UK, and are either piloting new projects to hire, train, and mentor refugees, or are scaling their existing efforts across the country to help refugees enter the labor market.
