London is an international city attracting people from across the globe. The capital has a long history of migration, contributing to its rich and diverse history, as well as its wealth. Many new Londoners do not need any support but there are some who are living in poverty, particularly migrants who do not have any legal status, making them vulnerable to exploitation.
The changes that Brexit brings, and the so-called ‘hostile environment’, means it is important to support Londoners who are at the margins of society to build connections within communities so that societies are more likely to live well together. This strand of our work aims to ensure that migrants are able to access and protect their rights, and get the support they need to fully participate in London life.
