Who We Are

Care Link is an organisation that was formed in on 16th October 2004. Our primary function is to support the refugee community from Central Africa living in West Midlands (Rwanda, Burundi, D R Congo, Congo Brazzaville, Central African Republic) and offer a number of services to the community.

Future programmes and conclusion

The key within Care Link's plans over the next few years is the development of its involvement in promoting and ensuring the mental health of refugee victims of trauma by strengthening support network. We aim at reinforcing the Saturday homework club's activities by subscribing to local, regional and national quality assessment frameworks. Our floating support scheme will continue as will our Parenting project do. To be able to do this, Care Link will rely on both fundraising via our normal grant application routes and the launch of commercial activities like selling African goods to subsidise falls in grant applications.

As it has been said elsewhere in this report, while our gratitude goes to all our present partners, our appeal to them and other perspective fund raisers and collaborators, is to be prepared for further development and the strengthening of the partnership that already exists and which hopefully will continue between us in the years ahead.

A big thank you to…

  • Our donors - both big and small - we are really grateful for your continuing support
  • Our committee members for steering Care Link through yet another exciting but challenging year
  • All parents, children, volunteers and consultants who were involved with various activities within our organisation
