A group of people linking together jigsaw pieces representing integration

Refugee Integration Yorkshire and Humber

Our ambition is to roll-out a whole-society approach to integration across Yorkshire and Humber and to support new refugees, communities and public services to work with and benefit from each other.

Refugees have a key role, informing all aspects of this work. They will be involved as researchers and as members of a regional refugee integration forum. RIYH aims to create a more integrated Yorkshire and Humber and to benefit communities beyond the lifetime of the project.

Migration Yorkshire are managing the project, and it's being delivered across the region through a wide partnership of organisations.

Connecting Opportunities

Connecting Opportunities worked with new migrants to develop their skills and opportunities to find work and be part of the local community. Ten organisations that specialise in working with migrants offered tailored support, cultural orientation, English language classes and other training across West Yorkshire and part of North Yorkshire (Craven, Harrogate, Selby and York). The project created new local connections, with opportunities for local people to be volunteer mentors and befrienders, and for employers to provide work placements to help people get a foothold in the job market. Connecting Opportunities was funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund.

Migration Yorkshire was the lead partner on the project.
