Women and migration. Introduction to migration
- Publisher: Migration Yorkshire
Women and migration is part of the Introduction to Migration series from the Integration up North project. The series provides a basic guide to migration for people working in public sector organisations: local authorities (including health services), police, fire and rescue services, probation services, Jobcentre Plus, Trades Unions and others. It should also be useful for those working in the voluntary and community sector.\ud The guidance aims to improve the knowledge and understanding of migration among service providers, so that they can shape their service to support the integration of new arrivals to the benefit of both the newly-arrived migrants and the wider local community. Throughout the guidance there are examples from practice across the northern region, and experiences of new arrivals in these areas. While the focus is migration to the north of England, it should also be useable in other areas of the UK.\ud This is intended to be an easy-to-use reference document. It does not provide legal advice or a detailed guide to immigration law and policy. In such a fast-changing context, information can quickly become out of date. All information should be checked with an expert or the Home Office if in doubt. We have highlighted other sources of information and guidance where it exists, for further reading and future reference.
