Who we are

Background

Migration Matters EAST as been developed by GYROS a frontline vulnerable migrant, refugee and asylum support service located in the East of England.

The concept of an East of England 'hub' originated during a four-year Lottery funded partnership with other frontline delivery partners. We soon realised other frontline, community-led, grassroots organisations could benefit from a central function that provides peer support for those in the lead, as well as practical expertise and shared knowledge.

Thus, we envisaged a regional 'hub' offering support, training and expertise to other organisations working with CALD communities and clients within the east of England.
