If you had to flee your home with nothing, you would hope that someone would welcome you and support you in rebuilding your life somewhere else. That’s what ICN does.


Our Christian charity believes that we should “welcome the stranger” and works to help refugees and migrants from all faiths and backgrounds to rebuild their lives in the UK. From providing English lessons to assisting in immigration cases, ICN strives to replace difficulty with dignity.



91 refugee and migrant families supported with weekly English classes, creches, homework clubs and key working


82 immigration cases closed in 2022 with a 96% success rate for our clients


23 English (ESOL) courses providing 340 students with weekly lessons

How we help

ICN helps individuals and families who have left everything behind to find a safe place to live. ICN enables refugees and asylum seekers to integrate and settle in the UK by providing them with the skills, support and advice they need when they are confused and vulnerable.

Advice & Support

Filling in forms can be complicated if you aren’t an expert or don’t speak English fluently. ICN provides practical advice and support to refugees and asylum seekers within our community.


English ESOL

How can you support yourself and your family if you don’t speak the language? We break down barriers by offering newly arrived refugees and asylum seekers English lessons.



Refugees arrive seeking stability in their lives. ICN gives immigration advice and support through our registered service.


Women and families programme

Leaving your friends and family behind can lead to isolation. We’ve created opportunities for women and children to improve their literacy and build a network of friends.


Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children

How old were you when you travelled to school on your own? ICN provides safety and support to children seeking asylum alone.


Resettlement & integration

Having a home and a safe place to call your own is important. We have enabled hundreds of families and individuals to rebuild their lives in Dorset.
