Our Partners

ACH (formerly Ashley Community Housing)

Established in 2008 in Bristol, ACH have now expanded to cover areas within the Midlands, including Coventry to provide an award-winning range of innovative and impactful support and integration services for refugees, BAME & migrants.

Focusing on building an individual’s resilience in the labour market, upskilling and supporting clients into sustainable, higher-level employment and developing independence to ease integration into UK life.

As part of MyCoventry – what we offer:

The Integrass Toolkit

Piloted as part of the Ignite Integration Programme, in partnership with Coventry City Council and The Job Shop in 2020 the toolkit has been successfully used to provide individual tailored approach to supporting migrants to get into employment, learn languages and acquire skills in a way that is best suited to them personally.

The toolkit is an assessment used to measure a person’s ‘level’ of integration by asking specific questions on key indicators of integration which creates a map of where a person is along their integration journey. This allows the project to offer a client a support plan that is tailored to their needs and who will then be referred to the MyCoventry partnership to support this.

Employability Skills

As part of this project we will be offering employability skills to Non-EU and EEA Nationals living in Coventry. Our support will include a named mentor to guide you through the process.

Courses include:

• Hello Job – Learn how to read, write, speak and listen in English. In addition, clients will receive lessons on employability skills, CV writing and interviews.

• Hello Neighbour – Learn how to read, write, speak and listen in English. There will also be an introduction to shopping and going to the doctors.

• Advocating for Myself – Receive support for Mental Health including lessons on wellbeing, resilience and self-esteem.
