In 2015/16 a total of 2687 instances of advice and interventions were provided which resulted in various improvements of living standards and integration of disadvantaged Armenians into mainstream society by increased access to statutory/public services, increased awareness about their rights and self-reliance to live and manage independently in UK. This is reflected in 100% positive feedback we have received via formal questionnaires from service users during the year.
