Refugee Support

Rainbow Drop-In Centre
Particularly aimed at refugees, this support centre offers advice and services to the refugee and migrant worker communities in Manchester.

The service providers meet and talk one on one with refugee and migrant workers, with interpreters on hand.

Acting as an employment fair, employers often attend and promote their vacancies at the centre.

History

  • Manchester has a long history of welcoming refugees from all parts of the world throughout the centuries. More recently, Manchester has become a second home to over 10,000 refugees over the last three decades. People of all ages and backgrounds have settled here and made their home in the North West.
  • Manchester Refugee Support Network emerged as an idea during the early 1990s with the aim of better serving the refugee communities in Manchester.
  • MRSN began as a Network made up of more established refugee communities such as Chilean, Bosnian, Sudanese and Kurdish Communities.
  • MRSN is now an established refugee-led agency with paid staff, managed by a voluntary committee of representatives from refugee communities.
  • We became a Charity in June 2005.
