Online city services guides launched for people who have recently moved to Leeds

Two new online guides providing people who have recently moved to Leeds from another country with a wealth of important information on how to access a variety of services that are available in the city, have been officially launched this month.

Undertaken as part of Leeds City Council’s ambition with partners from the third sector to build on the support that is available to both migrants and refugees on their arrival to the city.

Leeds City Council commissioned local charities of Touchstone and Leeds Asylum Seekers’ Support Network to develop two new websites; the ‘Leeds Transition Guide’ and ‘New to Leeds’.

The experiences of refugees and migrants in Leeds have played an important part in the development of both websites.

Available on the new websites is information and practical advice regarding health and housing matters, employment opportunities and much, much more.
