Refugee and Migrant Services
The Partnership Development Project (PDP) is a project managed by MENTER
Its main aim is to assist with the integration of asylum seekers, refugees and migrant workers in the East of England and to improve local community cohesion through partnerships working. This includes reducing inequalities, tackling disadvantages and increasing civic participation through partnership working with existing local Multi Agency Forums (MAF) member organisations.
We look to review the relevance of accumulated knowledge for other transitional groups. We aim to be working with groups working for the benefit of other migrant communities such as Gypsies and Travellers, and issues dealing with race and social cohesion.
The projectâs steering group consists of EELGA SMP (East of England Local Government Assembly Strategic Migration Partnership), the Refugee Council, the British Red Cross, the East of England development Agency (EEDA), Government Office of the East of England (GO-East) and MENTER.
The PDP project is now funded until March 2011 by the Department for Communities and Local Government (CLG) through the Tackling Race Inequality Fund.
