Speaking for Ourselves

Contact - Migrant Voice

Who we are


We started Migrant Voice because there was a huge debate taking place about us, without us. We were scapegoated and faced hostility. We wanted to speak for ourselves and to support other migrants to speak out too. 

For the last 10+ years we’ve been doing exactly that, developing the skills and confidence of members of migrant communities – including asylum seekers and refugees – so that policymakers and the public hear our voices on the issues that affect us.

Through speaking out – whether in the media or on public/political platforms – we seek to create positive change in UK society: countering xenophobia, strengthening communities, influencing policy and bringing justice. 

We have regional hubs in London, the West Midlands and Glasgow, and a national network of members, made up of both migrants and Brits. We welcome anyone who is concerned about the way migrants are portrayed in the media and passionate about bringing change to join our network.
