In October 2021, we released our first Sector Assessment – Barriers to Migrant Integration: Challenges Facing Migrants and the Migration Support Sector in Birmingham and The Black Country. The report has been shared widely with colleagues across the voluntary sector, policy makers, elected representatives and in local government.

It has been well received, again highlighting the significant inequalities faced by migrants in areas such as training and employment, as well basic needs such as healthcare, adequate housing and other fundamental rights.

We are keen to build on the momentum following the release of the report and as a result, we have began to develop our Migration Network. This brings together Sector Partners from the Third Sector, across the region, to share best practice, common issues and strategic planning, as well as looking to bring together a broad coalition of groups to work on these issues, develop responses and ensuring the needs of migrants are included in strategic planning.

Further details of the proposed network can be found on this page

The next meeting of our Migration Network will be in May. If you are an organisation who would be interested in getting involved with our Migration Network, please email
