Barka UK Reconnections Project

Barka UK Voluntary Reconnections project provides assisted return for Central and Eastern European (CEE) migrants to their country of origin. The project aims to ensure humane reconnection and reintegration of vulnerable migrants who are unable or unwilling to remain in the UK and wish to return voluntarily to their countries of origin, but lack the resources to do so.

Since June 2007, Barka UK has helped to return voluntarily to the countries of origin, over 5000 migrants from Central and Eastern Europe.
