Connecting Opportunities


We work with new migrants to develop their skills and opportunities to find work and be part of the local community, in West Yorkshire and parts of North Yorkshire. Several specialist organisations work together to provide the Connecting Opportunities service.

We help with things like:

  • developing the skills needed to gain employment in the UK
  • improving English
  • feeling part of the community
  • increasing confidence and well-being

What do our participants say about us?

‘Learning English is the only thing I have not succeeded at yet in my life, the support I have from you makes me feel valuable and I am so grateful for the opportunity to learn’

‘Before this project I was at home all the time, no family here, only me and my husband. So I didn’t know about anybody. Now I feel more confident, I feel happy.’

‘My dream is to have a job with parliament.’
