Making connections, building resilience: the new refugee integration strategy for Yorkshire and Humber

We're launching a brand new refugee integration strategy that aims to help different sectors and organisations from across the whole community to work together to eliminate barriers to integration, and improve the lives of refugees and asylum seekers living in the region.

The strategy outlines priorities across 10 different areas and themes:

  • housing and environment
  • economic integration
  • health and wellbeing
  • community and belonging
  • families and young people
  • language and communication
  • information and data
  • service planning and provision
  • the voluntary and community sector
  • participation

A fantastic resource for the region

The strategy has a clear vision, which is supported by a range of key values and principles, and will be an invaluable resource for both those who work in the migration sector and wider communities and organisations.

What happens next

The Migration Yorkshire team will reach out to leaders and stakeholders across the region to raise awareness of the strategy and discuss how to best use it for the benefit of all. We'll use this engagement to develop an action plan to help deliver the strategy and link this work to the new Refugee Integration Forum, which is currently being set up.

How we developed the strategy

The strategy was developed by Migration Yorkshire, following a period of consultation with many regional stakeholders, as part of Refugee Integration Yorkshire and Humber.
