Back to the future with the Leicester Star Alam refugee resettlement team 

It was nice to roll back the years and come home (occasionally) to the Leicester Housing Department. This is where it all started with the homeless families support team, the first and by far most advanced in the U.K. Different resettlement teams followed, showing continuity and a welfare culture that is rare in many organisations these days.

The benefits were clear to see, despite the adverse economic climate for vulnerable groups. When the opportunity came, the resettlement team for refugee families was set up in house. Over the two workshops it was refreshing to mix with new staff picking up the baton and bringing diverse experiences from all over the Alam (world)!
