Migrant Voice is a migrant-led organisation working to strengthen the voice, participation and representation of migrants in the media in order to encourage a more balanced, well-informed and inclusive debate on migration in Britain.

About Us

Migrant Voice is a migrant-led organisation set up to develop the skills, capacity and confidence of members of migrant communities, including asylum seekers and refugees, to develop their own strategies to strengthen their voice and representation in the media and at a policy making level.

Migrant Voice provides a platform for members from migrant communities, especially those whose voices are not usually heard, encourages and enables them to express their views on the issues affecting their lives in the UK, and to address the British public with the aim of correcting the imbalance in the way migrants are represented across large parts of the media. We believe that making your voice heard is an important step towards change, and that every individual has the ability to make positive changes in their own life and the community they live in.

Migrant Voice currently has regional hubs in London, Birmingham and Glasgow. Membership is open to all migrants and non migrants wanting to engaging in creating positive change. To get involved in the UK Migrant Voices for Change network, please contact us.

Our Work

Providing training and building capacity: Migrant Voice delivers training sessions on photography, basic film-making skills, writing articles, social media, effective messaging, interview techniques, and pitching stories to journalists and media outlets. These sessions give our members the tools to create their own varied content in order to inform, debate, educate, and campaign around issues affecting migrants.

Engaging in media work: Migrant Voice acts as a liaison between our members, media outlets and civil society, providing opportunities for migrant representation in the public debate on migration. Our members have made their voices heard on Channel 4, BBC Radio West Midlands and the Daily Record in Scotland, among others.

Producing the Migrant Voice newspaper: Migrant Voice produces a free newspaper which addresses the British public directly. The newspaper provides a further platform for members to claim a voice in the migration debate. Each year we distribute 100,000 copies to members of the public and policy makers in London, Birmingham, Glasgow and other cities across the UK.

Facilitating dialogue: Migrant Voice organises public events to encourage dialogue between migrants, the media and the British public around questions of migration, including an annual conference. Our conference foregrounds an inclusive debate on migration, examines public attitudes and media representations of migrants and raises alternate voices and messages.

Migrant Voice is a member of the European Anti-Poverty Network, the largest European network of national, regional and local networks active in the fight against poverty and social exclusion.

Migrant Voice staff, members and volunteers also participate in a variety of international conferences and forums ,which address the issues and challenges of migration and social inclusion.
