The aim of Leeds Migration Partnership is to help make Leeds a welcoming and supportive place for Migrants – bringing together individuals, groups and organisations to meet, think and share information, and ensuring that the voices of Migrants are heard and influence the people in charge
It is a mechanism for developing and influencing policy, and promoting good practice in areas which affect migrant communities in Leeds, the region and the UK.
The Migration Partnership is the collective term for three city-wide cross-sector groups (the Information Group; the Operations Group and the Strategy Group) for organisations, groups and individuals working with migrant communities in Leeds.
Although each group has a different focus, they all aim to strengthen the voice and influence of migrants in Leeds in different ways, and to enable other groups to better understand their concerns and priorities.
