Migrants Supporting Migrants

This charity works to help newly arrived migrants living in the Manchester area.  It aims to promote social inclusion amongst migrants by identifying their needs and providing support in education, health and well-being, to ensure greater understanding and acceptance in the community.  It supports around 100 people currently.

A grant of £4,500 was awarded to Migrants Supporting Migrants at the Foundation’s October 2016 meeting.  The funding will support the setting up of a ‘Solidarity and Integration Volunteering Scheme’.  This aims to provide befriending support to new migrants, and increase volunteering opportunities to people who have been living in Greater Manchester for longer.  Volunteers will be matched one-to-one with new migrants who will provide them with support and assistance as they settle in the UK.
