Jim Steinke, Chief Executive of NRC: "NRC provides a range of services that aim to improve the conditions of and opportunities for refugees and asylum seekers across Yorkshire and Humberside, and particularly in South Yorkshire. This is only possible thanks to the commitment of our staff and volunteers and the refugees and groups that we work with. To maintain and build upon these services obviously requires funding and organising. We also try to ensure that our activities are focused on the broader issues affecting refugees and asylum seekers, not just negative ones, like hostile media, discrimination and harassment, but also the positive aspects like how refugees can benefit the social, economic and cultural development of host communities. NRC has a history of succesful projects focusing on befriending and mentoring, as well as work to support refugee women. NRC has also run a range of training sessions on the asylum process and also around awareness-raising.
We always aim to ensure that our services respond to the changing needs of new migrants and of local communities where they live."
