We’re really pleased to announce that we’ve been successful in obtaining funding from the Big Lottery Fund to do some work around refugees and asylum seekers. Over the next year, we will work with three organisations to try and identify the most important issues that refugees and asylum seekers present to services.
We will create a map of these issues and build up the evidence base for how resolving those issues results in an improvement in health and wellbeing. All of the results of this work will be freely available for any service to use.
We have already got ASIRT as one partner but we’re keen to find two other organisations to take part.
For any organisation taking part, they will get to contribute what they know about the people they work with, in order to shape how we can measure outcomes. Each organisation will get free access to our Risk Tracker system to measure work with clients and will be taken through our Outcome Mark for Evidence. We will also provide some tablets so that they can use the system in face to face client work.
If you know of an organisation that would like to take part please email firstname.lastname@example.org. This offer is not restricted to Birmingham. In fact, we’re keen to get as broad a contribution to the project as possible in order to get a greater sense of the common issues.
We look forward to hearing from you.
