Who We Are

Rethink Rebuild Society (RR) is a Manchester-based non-profit organisation that works towards improving the lives of Syrians in the UK and helping them become positively established within British society. Our work began informally after the start of the uprising in Syria in March 2011, and we were formally registered in May 2013. Our work comprises of three distinct yet interrelated components:

  • Community Support
  • Advocacy
  • Education Project

We are a not-for-profit organisation (company limited by guarantee, No: 08528808). Our work is executed by a team of employees and community volunteers and we depend on the contributions of RR members and donations from RR friends.
