START Interview

Following our latest blog about how businesses can employ refugees and displaced people from other countries, I thought it would be useful to share my interview with Rachel Preston from Students and Refugees together (START).

START has been in operation since 2001, and supports refugees in becoming self reliant and contributing to their  new communities. Students work in partnership with families, individuals and organisations to help growing numbers of refugees into employment and education. To date, START has helped over 370 refugees and their families throughout Devon and Cornwall

Listen to our interview here, and if you’d like to offer your help as either a student, or as a business who would like to employ a refugee, contact START at:
