About Us

What are we doing

The specialist partnership that MyCoventry has developed will bridge service gaps, provide mentoring, coaching and holistic interventions to support client progression and integration.

The city-wide partnership between Coventry City Council, the Job Shop, St Francis Employability, ACH, Coventry University and Positive Youth Foundation is part-funded by the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF). 

Working together will allow us to capitalise on each organisation’s strengths and knowledge. The project will deliver an exciting programme of activities designed to create opportunities for newly arrived communities.

MyCoventry will help improve language skills and enable new communities to learn and feel a part of the life of the city; as well as boost employment opportunities.

The Migration Team

Our Journey so far

The Coventry City Council Migration team has been working collaboratively with both statutory & voluntary sector organisations for more than 6 years to improve the impact of early interventions, to successfully integrate refuges and migrants into their communities.

In 2014 the Syrian Vulnerable People’s Resettlement Scheme was announced by the Home Secretary, designed to aid Syrians who have fled to neighbouring countries as a result of the crisis and who are particularly vulnerable.

Coventry joined the scheme in July 2014, which laid the foundation for the Migration Team today.

Today the Migration Team consists of over 20 members and manage a range of externally funded programmes.
