The West Midlands Immigration Network was created in October 2022 by four non-profit organisations operating in the region with funding received under the Justice Together Initiative.
The Refugee and Migrant Centre (RMC), Brushstrokes, Citizens Advice Staffordshire North and Stoke on Trent (CASNS) and Hope Projects formed a partnership with the vision of strengthening immigration services in the West Midlands and working towards enabling marginalised migrants to better access free, regulated, legal advice to understand their options and ultimately settle in the UK.
This report aims to present some of the achievements of the Network in its first year of operation and highlight the importance of working in partnership to increase capacity, improve quality and build teams resilient and equipped to work in the challenging field of free immigration advice provision.
The West Midlands Immigration Network is a project funded by the Justice Together Initiative (JTI) designed to build the quality and provision of Immigration advice across the West Midlands. Four partners have come together to develop this support.
