The MiFriendly Cities project funds 13 migrant lead ‘social innovation’ projects, who are supported by MigrationWork CIC. These projects are community projects aimed at promoting community integration, migrant rights, and migrant empowerment.
Connected through our joint training, the group of funded projects formed a Network in January 2020 – currently referred to as “the Network”. Our Network aims to work together to promote the rights of migrants in the region and beyond, as well as supporting other migrant-lead organisations.
The Network is a powerful collection of grassroots organisations, see list below. Most of our organisations are run by volunteers. In 2020, the Network ran a series of regional Network meetings, and has held Network meetings every 6-8 weeks (mostly over the phone due to Covid). The projects have all been involved in the MiFriendly Cities programme since March 2019, and have had access to a series of training sessions covering themes including funding, fundraising, evaluation and communication.
Our Network of projects is looking for someone with vision and drive to help us to achieve our joint purpose. The Network has huge potential, and we want the help of someone with insight, experience and expertise in order to help us develop this Network as much as is possible in order to achieve this potential.
The current MiFriendly Cities funding and the support we receive from MigrationWork CIC will end in January 2021. The Network Development Officer will help the Network to develop in order to be self-sustaining beyond the end of the MiFriendly Cities support.
The role will be carried out under the supervision of a management team from the Network of projects, (including Migrants at Work, BME Housing Consortium, CARAG and Community Sewing Group, and MigrationWork CIC).
The list below outlines tasks that the Network would like to be achieved. However, this list is open to negotiation. The appointed person will be expected to agree, define, and be in regular communication with the Network about the progress of tasks.
