The Migrant Access Project service supports new migrants in Wakefield to learn about key services and how to make the most of them. It helps newcomers to be informed so they can make the most of educational, work and cultural opportunities. The service trains Migrant Community Networkers to become experts on local service provision, sharing this knowledge with their communities in a range of languages. In addition the MAP team hold multicultural events to share and celebrate diversity and arrange informative talks by service or third sector leads that can be attended for free. We are collaborating with our partner Wakefield Council.
The Migrant Access Project runs until October 2020 and builds on the legacy of the Migrant Access Project Plus in Leeds which concluded in March 2020.
