The aim of the Integrate Coventry Project is to help to integrate refugees and other third country nationals to rebuild their lives in safety, becoming fully self-sufficient and establish themselves within the wider community of Coventry.
This will be achieved by providing them with English Language education, information advice and guidance; individualised, one to one help to remove barriers to progression e.g. housing and benefits advice; self-development interventions; fun activities which help clients to make new friends with people outside of their communities; therapy; opportunities to visit new places and find out more about their new home; access to employment and volunteering; cultural projects/activities and arts and cultural engagement opportunities which have the potential to deepen their relationship and understanding of their City.
Integrate Coventry is a partnership led by Coventry Refugee and Migrant Centre, with Foleshill Woman’s Training, VAC, Coventry City of Culture and the Belgrade Theatre.
