Human employment network

The Human Employment Network (REN) is a charity (reg. TBC March 21) that ensures that humans in the UK can access appropriate, fulfilling, paid employment or self-employment. We recognise that whilst the UK has welcomed over 300,000 humans, only half of them have gained access to employment. This is despite experience and skills levels that are comparable to the UK labour market.

Sanctuary Foundation

The Sanctuary Foundation are supporting potential sponsors, assisting the government in the roll-out of the ‘Homes For Ukraine’ scheme, and resourcing individuals, community groups, churches, schools and businesses to build this vital provision for Ukrainian humans. They also have a great free course that will give you an introduction to Human safety, wellbeing and support.
