About Us

IPC is a registered charity (no. 1160482) promoting the social and economic inclusion of asylum seekers, refugees and minority communities. We are based in North East of England, with centres in the heart of Middlesborough and Newcastle, with regular outreach into Stockton and Gateshead.

We have established solid connections that underpin all our activities, and provide the basis for our successful projects. In Teesside we  link extensively with local organisations who can offer practical support, particularly in terms of employment opportunities and training, whilst in Tyneside we provide support to the Refugee Community Organisations who are often the first port of call for new migrants, widening our reach and strengthening our connection with beneficiary communities.

Integration into life in Britain comes with many challenges, but we're here to help you with:


About Us

Employment, Education and Training

Build on existing skills and talents with our help. We can provide the practical, academic and cultural knowledge you need to adjust to your new life.

English Language Support

We provide new arrivals with language support and workshops about life in the UK. We offer normal education programmes, such as ESOL, as well as peer learning opportunities.

Cultural Integration

We frequently host get-togethers where our diverse communities can meet over a shared meal or social activity and learn a little about each other's lives.

Raising Awareness

We advocate for people who have just arrived in our communities. We talk to politicians, academics and the media about the role and contributions of immigrants. We also advise service providers on how we can better meet your needs.

Health and Wellbeing

Our projects are designed to support your physical and mental wellbeing. We encourage group activity and positive contributions to the area we live in.
