Migrant support offers to vulnerable migrants, refugees and asylum seekers free, confidential advice, practical support and a place where they can feel safe and be able to move forward closer to employment and formal education.
During the COVID-19 many of our service users have experienced further isolation and uncertainty on how to access services, these have increased levels of anxiety and feelings of desperation as they might be also separated from their families having fled wars, terrorism and human rights abuses initiated by repressive regimes, or have been persecuted due to their sexual, racial, cultural or religious orientation in their country of origin.
We encourage our service users to engage in activities such as learning the English language and participate in Skills for Life, employability and digitally inclusive programmes which aim to allow them to integrate and find work so that they can contribute positively to their local community.
We also offer advice when our service users encounter problems such as homelessness or are suffering financial hardship due to unemployment, or struggle to access housing, asylum and health services by referring them to external agencies. Consequently, we provide an essential safety net for vulnerable people from a migrant background who would otherwise struggle to overcome barriers to integration and social inclusion.
Help us to continue our frontline safe face to face support and our online support.
Like many charities, Migrant Support has been affected by the COVID-19 crisis, high demand for our services but limited resources available. We hope we will get your support so we can keep connected and providing the support to our service users and expand our provision to those who are isolated and have been critically impacted by the crisis.
