We are delighted to share with you our first Sector Assessment – BARRIERS TO MIGRANT INTEGRATION: CHALLENGES FACING MIGRANTS AND THE MIGRATION SUPPORT SECTOR IN BIRMINGHAM AND THE BLACK COUNTRY. It is intended to provide a detailed look at the issues affecting integration for migrants in the region across four thematic areas.

Our findings highlight the increasing challenges faced by migrants in effectively settling and building lives within the region. Systemic issues continue to hamper many in accessing not only training and employment, but basic needs such as healthcare, adequate housing and other fundamental rights.

The Executive Summary is attached, and you can download the full report from our website HERE

We would like to thank all the colleagues and partners who have contributed to the process. We look forward to working with you over the next twelve months on the issues in order to affect meaningful change and action across the region.
