Afghanistan Support

Our Afghanistan Support project welcomes, and supports the integration of, new residents from Afghanistan to the London Borough of Sutton. This project is fully funded by Sutton Council.

At Volunteer Centre Sutton, we are excited to introduce our latest project aimed at providing essential support to the Afghan community who have recently settled in the London Borough of Sutton. Our team is committed to extending a helping hand across key areas such as Housing, Finance, Health, Education, and Employability, offering invaluable assistance as they navigate the challenges of their new lives.

Extending a Helping Hand Across Key Topics

Integrating into a new community can bring many challenges. That's why our project places a special focus on specific areas that significantly impact the successful integration of the Afghan community. Our team deliver informative sessions and workshops that delve into the following core topics:

  • Housing: 
  • Finance: 
  • Health: 
  • Education: 
  • Employability: 

To deliver these sessions, we actively collaborate with experts from various public bodies and commercial sectors. These professionals contribute their knowledge and experience, providing invaluable insights that empower the Afghan community to make informed decisions and confident steps towards feeling comfortable and confident in their new lives in Sutton.
