A chance to re-energise the region’s collective commitment to refugee integration

Migration Yorkshire have secured funding to coordinate the development of a new regional Refugee Integration Strategy and Refugee Integration Forum during 2021-22.

This gives us all a unique opportunity to develop a new strategic approach to refugee integration, starting with a region-wide debate about what ‘integration’ means to each of us, including refugees and asylum seekers.

Some people chatting in front of a timeline called 'Migration to Yorkshire and Humber in the 21st century' -  a selection of moments about migration, Yorkshire and Humber, the UK and the world over the last 20 years'; the timeline is colourful and shows items such as a teapot and a Yorkshire flag, but it's not possible to read any more text in this photo.

What will we achieve?

We want to build on our successes and ensure that, going forward, the region can offer:

  • More opportunities for refugees and asylum seekers to integrate.
  • More joined-up approaches to service planning and delivery.
  • More coordination between the public, voluntary and business sectors.
  • More funding for our voluntary and community organisations.
  • More and better evidence of refugee integration.
  • More awareness of the needs and assets of refugees and asylum seekers.
