The MigrationWork Trust was established by MigrationWork Community Interest Company (CIC) in 2013 to be the beneficiary of the CIC’s community benefit funds. The CIC sets aside some 10% of its income to meet community interests. The Trust also can benefit from private donations and from GiftAid.
The Trust aims to promote social inclusion for the public benefit by preventing new migrants from becoming socially excluded and assisting them to integrate successfully into the communities into which they settle.
In 2016 and 2017, the Trust used its funds to successfully run the UK’s first Community Integration Awards. The Awards were a means to publicise and showcase best practice in migrant integration in the UK at a time when there was a distinct lack of central guidance or funding for integration work. Off the back of the success of the Community Integration Awards, MigrationWork CIC is now looking for 1-2 new trustees to join the Trust Board for a minimum of three years to drive the awards forward and secure sponsorship for 2019 and beyond.
