Episode 37

Play episode

Yusuf and Mjed are two refugee entrepreneurs who are kickstarting their exciting new social enterprises. In this programme we find out all about their plans and discover the capabilities and untapped potential of refugees in the UK.

“We think this message is crucial, to turn mainstream audiences away from victimising refugees and towards the truth,” says Fred Kastner of TERN, “that refugees can very much create the best solutions for refugees and asylum seekers (and other communities), if they get fair representation and access to resources”

Ideas into Action is a programme that supports people from a refugee background who live in the UK to develop their own social enterprises and non-profits. It provides specialist support including workshops, professional coaching, business, marketing and fundraising information and skills training, as well as public-facing events. It is being delivered by TERN and Result CIC in a new partnership with Social Enterprise UK.
