The Migration Project focuses on improving the experiences of migrant communities in Stockton-on-Tees, with a particular focus on refugees and asylum seekers.

By building and maintaining strong connections between the VCSE sector and the Local Authority. the project supports the wide network of organisations in Stockton-on-Tees and the greater Tees Valley area. Through Catalyst, the Migration Project hosts two cooperative working groups: 

The Stockton-on-Tees Refugees and Asylum Seekers Forum

This is a meeting of community members and organisation leaders across Stockton-on-Tees with an interest in improving their ability to support the local sanctuary-seeker community. An open forum, the quarterly meeting provides the community a platform for information-sharing, collaborative working, and networking. If you would like to be added to the mailing list, contact 

The Stockton-on-Tees Migration Partnership (SMP) 

This meeting brings together representatives from the Local Authority, statutory agencies, and other strategic-level bodies to improve the experience of local migrant communities across the Borough. Complementary to the Refugees and Asylum Seekers Forum, the SMP provides a space to share best practices and promote the social and economic inclusion of migrants throughout the community.
