Get to know the newcomers, activists and volunteers we met in Athens, Berlin and London, as they share their personal experiences of refuge, welcome and the digital city.
We are a migrant-led organisation. A lot of our staff and volunteers are migrants ourselves and we really value that personal experience of integration. We’ve experienced it ourselves, and we use that a lot in our work as a way to relate and be able to offer support.
And integration is quite central — we don't view it as a one-way process, the whole of society is also changing as a process of integration. It’s not just people assimilating into the British model, but it’s a group of people coming in and making Britain or the UK, London or Haringey, a better place to live in because of the skills that they bring and their interests. This is real integration.
