They offer a range of services, including immigration and asylum advice, as well as one-on-one assistance with welfare, housing, health, and accessing various support services.

Their offerings extend to English language classes, training sessions, creative endeavors, social events, sports activities, and well-being programs, along with opportunities for volunteering and trips. Additionally, they administer a befriending and integration service.

The charity’s center features amenities such as a free shop, salon, relaxation area, garden, and facilities for refurbishing bikes and second-hand technology. Notably, they operate the Welcome Cafe on Mondays and Thursdays, providing complimentary cooked meals to all visitors.

They are the only organisation in Calderdale specialising in supporting people fleeing war and persecution, working with 1700 women, men and children seeking asylum and new refugees annually.
