Welcome to Migrant Help and welcome to our website.
We are a non-campaigning organisation committed to providing support and guidance to migrants in distress and victims of modern day slavery known as Human Trafficking.
In 2013 Migrant Help will reach its 50th year of providing an excellent service. In the early 1960's we worked mainly around the port of Dover and were born from the needs to support au pairs and other migrants that had been mistreated or abused. Due to our success as an organisation that provides a balanced and intelligent approach to addressing the risks and needs presented by the diverse challenges that can be faced by foreign nationals, our provision has grown considerably. Today we offer support, guidance and safe accommodation across the UK. We have strong European links and include EU migrants in our client group.
Our website provides access to the advice, information and guidance you need. If you cannot find what you are looking for then please contact us directly using the button provided.
We are a charity run by incredible staff and our work becomes ever more busy and complex. If you would like to help us, in any way, please get in touch and make a difference to the life of someone in distress. We run an extensive work placement/volunteer programme. This provides a tremendous opportunity for those interested in current affairs, social challenges and humanitarian issues to develop their knowledge and practical experience further.
Statement of Purpose
Migrant Help is an organisation committed to supporting, guiding, advising and accommodating distressed migrants and victims of trafficking in partnership with the Government and Private sector. We provide our clients with the resources and support they need to find safety and become successful, active and contributing members of the community.
Migrant Help seeks to achieve excellence through objectivity when working with all partners and stakeholders to arrive at the best possible and most appropriate outcomes for our client group. We believe in fairness and equality of opportunity in the creation of a 100% client focused support process. We do this by respecting and supporting the values of our partners and stakeholders whilst addressing the serious challenges and suffering faced by the vulnerable people with whom we work. We understand the need for an effective and transparent network of communication between ourselves and our partners to address the complex range of issues presented within this arena.
Migrant Help is a non campaigning organisation that channels all its resources into supporting clients and working within communities to increase the public’s understanding of them. We support integration and inclusion by ensuring that our client’s voices are heard and their needs are met.
