Migrant communities

The Foundation has been funding migrant communities as a distinct category of work since 2010. 

We are not currently receiving a high number of applications within this category and therefore there has been an average of only three to four grants per annum recently.

The Foundation funds work with migrant communities that are newly arrived to the UK. These may be from Europe or further afield and involve a mix of nationalities that have come to the UK to work in industries such as hospitality or food production, or just to seek a new life.

Organisations supported include those run directly by, or providing support to, migrant communities and workers.

Over recent years grants have been made to assist new migrants to settle into the area/community and to integrate with the local community. The type of activities funded have included English language classes, advice and information across a range of issues, advocacy, support that helps avoid migrants being exploited, and support for those that are suffering issues such as domestic abuse.

If you have any queries or need further clarification on eligibility, please contact tim@allenlane.org.uk.
