About this Event

The SIREE project aims to improve the social and economic integration of refugees by introducing new actions created by refugees to improve livelihoods. We aim to increase the engagement of refugees in the education process and to improve the economic independence of refugees through self-employment.

At this event, we hope to share some of the work of the UK partners and introduce you to other work in the UK to better integrate refugees and migrants.
