SPRING is an EU partnership between 6 organisations delivering support to refugees from the point at which they get leave to remain. On that day they are given 30 days before being evicted. Prompt, holistic support is critical.
Mainly operating from the city centre hub called The Sanctuary on Chapel walk the 6 partners offer support in accessing housing, benefits, volunteering, employment, English language and therapy for acute mental health challenges.
The partnership aims to provide joined up, holistic support at this critical point in the refugee’s journey into mainstream society to prevent the dangers of destitution and enable people to transition to their new lives in Sheffield.
