RISE

RAMFEL is partnering with Renaisi to
deliver Project RISE (Refugees into Sustainable
Employment) – a new service to support refugees in
North and East London into sustainable, rewarding
employment.
RISE includes
English Language for Speakers of Other Language
(ESOL) courses, as well as social wellbeing
activities, confidence building and tailored one-toone
employability support to increase employment
prospects. This includes CV writing, interview
preparation, job search support and help with
benefits. RISE also provides in-work mentoring for
up to six months to ensure a smooth transition into
the labour market.

Project RISE is supported through the Building
Better Opportunities programme, which is funded
by the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund
(ESF). BBO is designed to support communities,
families and individuals to gain the tools and
skills necessary to find and sustain jobs they
value – helping them to integrate, and increasing
confidence and wellbeing.
Building Better Opportunities sees the Big Lottery
Fund matching funds from European Social Fund
(ESF) 2014 – 2020, to provide joint investment in
local projects that tackle poverty and promote
social inclusion. Over the next few years the
funding will be delivered in 38 Local Enterprise
Partnership (LEP) areas according to local priorities.
