Ashley Community Housing

On 14th March, I visited Ashley Community Housing to discuss their impressive work in the resettlement of refugees. Ashley Community Housing is a thriving social enterprise that puts people before profits. ‘Community’ is at the heart of everything they do we do to bring about positive change throughout communities in the West of England and the West Midlands.  Since 2008 they have successfully resettled over 2000 individuals from refugee backgrounds– developing their independence, promoting their positive contribution to the community and easing their integration into UK life. Unlike similar organisations which place an emphasis on processing numbers, Ashley Housing deals with individuals who each have unique needs, skills and ambitions. Many of Ashley Housing staff, including our CEO, have lived experience as former refugees, meaning they have produced a tried and tested resettlement service that is culturally responsive. For more information following this link. I’m particularly impressed with their Rethinking Refugee Campaign.
