Integr8 Programme

personal-development

Integr8 is a personal development and integration programme suitable for refugees and asylum seekers who want to start a purposeful life and work experience in the UK. The programme helps participants develop the skills and find the motivation, clarity, tools, confidence and support they need to integrate into their host community and start making a positive difference in their life and the world by doing work they are passionate about.

There are two versions of the programme; 4-day (full programme) or 2-day (mini programme). 
Both programmes are delivered in either English language for those who have a reasonable fluency in English, or Arabic language for refugees and asylum seekers who only speak Arabic.

The programme is facilitated by Saif Ali, founder of Integr8 UK, social entrepreneur and a qualified coach and group facilitator. You can read more about Saif Ali here.

The Integr8 project is what refugees need when they come to a new country. It helped me make new connections and find hope and direction in life in the UK. Through the Integr8 programme I learned many work skills and I started volunteering in Plymouth and I learned how I can create a better life for myself and others. I feel part of the community and I have many friends. I now believe more in myself and I feel more confident and positive. Serge – Integr8 programme Participant
