About migrantcommunitynetwork

Migrant Communities Network works on ways that individuals can organise themselves and to help the people of Leeds and the city’s new arrivals. Over the last year our workers and volunteers been taking a crash course on all things “Leeds” and the “UK” and then we make sure that people from our communities are getting the right messages about what services do and what they don’t do. This not only helps people who are new to the UK to navigate what can sometimes be a bureaucratic nightmare (can’t get a flat ‘til you have a bank account, can’t get a bank account ‘til you have an address etc) but it really helps Leeds’ services to do what they do best when people know what to expect and how to use the services well. Migrant Communities Network is part of Leeds Migration Partnership. This is a strategic partnership of agencies and organisations who work together to make sure that Leeds gets the benefits of migration to the city, People don’t cross oceans and continents if they don’t have something about them – and tapping in to their skills and potential can only make our city better.

  1. Hi Shafique, Thanks for this post, it is a subject of interest to me as my family’s lives were blighted by alcohol misuse, it’s a shame there isn’t more support available either for people suffering from drink related illness or their families and friends. There is a newish project in Great George Street called Space, which deals with alcohol, drug and mental health issues, maybe you would like to team up to write a piece about it? I know one of the people there.
    I’m planning to go to the Heritage Open Day event at the Mosque on Sunday.
