IOM IN THE UNITED KINGDOM
IOM plays a vital role resettling refugees to the UK by providing predeparture and travel assistance. This includes health assessments, provision of travel documents and visas, pre-departure orientation and operational escorts during their journey.
IOM believes integration works best when migrants and host communities engage in two-way communications about backgrounds, expectations and goals.
IOM fosters a shared vision, sense of belonging and value of diversity between migrants and the receiving community by promoting community engagement and cohesion.
We work to reduce the prevalence of, and harm caused by, human trafficking and modern slavery.
We support the contributions of diaspora communities through research and diaspora mappings, awareness raising of remittance costs and patterns and facilitating the sharing of diaspora skills and expertise.
We provide secure, reliable, and cost-effective services to migrants by providing return and reintegration assistance and by offering reliable transit assistance to refugees and migrants.
We assist in the development of effective migration management policies by conducting and sharing research, supporting increased dialogue between migration stakeholders and providing migration policy advice.
In the UK, IOM focuses on capacity building, developing partnerships and supporting UK networks by delivering bespoke training to those that care for migrant children.
