Donating time and expertise: RSK supports Refugees & Mentors

June 02, 2020

An organisation dedicated to helping refugees and migrants improve their employment prospects and find work has launched a new website courtesy of RSK Communication Services.

Refugees & Mentors, based in Manchester, UK, needed to develop its online presence to continue to provide pre-employment information, guidance and mentoring to refugees and migrants and to build links with employers and organisations supporting refugees. With a team of talented writers, designers, web specialists and editors, RSK’s creative business donated its time and expertise to produce a well-organised and responsive website.

Founded in 2016 and consisting largely of volunteers, Refugees & Mentors works across the Manchester and Greater Manchester regions to help reduce unemployment. They offer four key services: the Mentoring Project provides mentoring and employment guidance to refugees for up to five months; the Rainbow Haven work club, a partnership offering employment-related information, guidance and support for refugees, migrants and people seeking asylum; the Returner Project that helps refugee engineering, architecture, IT, telecommunications and business service professionals to restart their careers in the UK; and a series of free employment courses and workshops.

The new website gathers these services in one place and provides guidance to service users and potential employers on how they can get involved. You can read more about the organisation and explore the full site here.

“Thank you for RSK’s support in developing the Refugees & Mentors’ website,” says Amanda Littlewood, Refugees & Mentors Project Manager. “The website is now live and really communicates our services for clients and employers online. It has been a real pleasure to work with the team to develop the site and we couldn’t have asked for better support.”

Refugees & Mentors relies largely on donations and grants, so RSK Communication Services was delighted to be able to donate its services to help boost the online profile of the organisation. The site is the latest addition to RSK Communication Services’ voluntary work, including creating a logo, brand identity and website for RAVEN, a local, grassroots charity that works on behalf of international refugees, creating a website for the Cheshire Down’s Syndrome Support Group and producing a branding and advertising campaign for the Tattenhall Allotments Association, a local organisation in the village where RSK Communication Services is headquartered.
