Advocacy and justice
Vulnerable migrants are often rendered ‘voiceless’ and ‘faceless’ and crumble under the pressure of complex systems. Migrant Action exists to speak-up, defend and reclaim rights where this has been lost. Through advocacy we seek to challenge all forms of discrimination and inequality and to enhance rights, equal access, humanity and social justice. We enable migrants to access justice and actualise their rights working in partnership with specialist services.
Compassion and Lived experience
Our work and ethos is shaped largely by lived experiences as migrants and direct working with migrants for over a decade with different migrant groups and in different contexts. Our lived experience underpins or values, practices and approaches with migrants, partner agencies and supporters.
Empowerment and Choice
Migrant Action’s provision builds confidence and equip migrants to make informed decisions and choices. We work to make migrants aware of their rights and choices available to them.
We recognize that crisis intervention is not only costly but often counter-productive. The prospects for positive outcomes are significantly enhanced through early and targeted interventions. Migrant Action adopts a proactive and early interventionist approach it is work with migrants and other services.
Confidentiality & Impartiality
Migrant Action offers migrants a safe space to openly explore sensitive and complex issues. We respect the individual’s right to privacy. When and where information needs to shared, we would follow strict information sharing protocols.We an independent organization and adopt a non-judgemental and non-directive approach to advice and guidance by enabling migrants to fully explore the range of options and in order to confidently make informed choices.
Migrant Action works collaboratively with other agencies and builds strategic alliances in order effectively support migrants and influence wider policy/systemic changes.
Our work is based and shaped by the needs and experiences of migrants. We focuses on vulnerable migrants and newly granted refugees.
