Refugee Cafe Needs Asssessment

Refugee Cafe Needs Assessment Survey

Refugee Cafe is undertaking an an engagement exercise to learn what the main barriers are for refugees trying to find employment in South East London. To do this we want to hear from refugees and migrants in the area.

The information we learn will be important in helping us to know what is needed and how we can be most useful and supportive. We will use it to develop activities that best help refugees and those granted asylum to find work and feel more connected in the community. It is an opportunity to shape what our charity focuses on in future.

The questionnaire should take around 6 minutes to complete. It includes questions on current work, previous experience, employment and training opportunities, barriers to employment, and ideas for Refugee Cafe support. 

You can complete the questionnaire online. Participation in this research is voluntary and answers will be completely anonymous. Completing the questionnaire indicates consent for the responses to be analysed by the Refugee Cafe team and used to inform Refugee Cafe’s plans. It will not gather any personal data that could be used to identify who responded.

Many thanks for reading this information and hopefully completing our online questionnaire. If you have any questions on the research or would like to keep up to date with our initiatives, please visit our website, email us at, or follow us on social media.
