If I get the right to remain, what then?

My education was disrupted – can I ever go back?

How will I rebuild my life in this country?

The Cotton Tree is a community of learning, formal and informal. Members, staff and volunteers share knowledge, skills and understanding.

Some members are keen to return to formal education, and we try to guide them.

We work with Reconnect Online, partnered with UCL, which runs a programme for refugees and asylum seekers called Reconnect to Education: Preparation for Higher Education. Through our services and network, we help our members on a case-by-case basis as they move towards a settled life in the UK.
