In-depth – SPRING offers help to refugees when they receive “leave to remain” and need support accessing housing, opening a bank account, applying for benefits and immigration advice.  

Once these urgent needs have been addressed, we support individuals with their longer-term integration, such as learning English, routes into volunteering, education, training, and finding a job. 

SPRING can provide limited support for those who’ve experienced trauma and also signpost to a variety of activities supporting mental and physical wellbeing across Sheffield. 

Ukraine Response – Refugee Support for Ukrainians is accessed through SPRING except for housing support which is accessed through Sheffield City Council.
