The last 30 minutes of the session will involve Migration, Cohesion and Health Watch Kirklees Teams sharing with the group a new initiative that you are all invited to contribute to and develop further.

The aim of the initiative is to develop a network of community champions/connectors from our local migrant communities to work closely with so they can develop their own messages and share them with communities. Information will be provided regarding NEW funding available for communities to develop their own messages.

For further details please contact Abed Moubayed, via email: abed.moubayed@kirklees.gov.uk

Please share this widely  – the session is for all working with and connected to migrant communities across Kirklees
