 Migrant Voice - Resources for anyone impacted by Covid-19

While the lockdown has lifted for some of us, we know that many people are still being impacted by Covid-19 on a daily basis, whether that’s a health problem, a financial issue, or an immigration problem.

Here are some free, online resources that you might find useful. We will continue to add to this list as we find other helpful information....

 

The Mayor of London has been working with Doctors of the World to ensure everyone with limited English receive the health guidance and support they need. 

They have created these resources that are free and available for anyone to access:

  • Infographics and videos in this Google drive on social media. This Includes: Vietnamese, Cantonese, Turkish,  Bengali,  Kurdish,  Romanian, Spanish, Portuguese, Bulgarian, Polish, Urdu, Punjabi (Pakistan), Punjabi (India), Gujarati and Yiddish. 
  • Translated audio guidance by Doctors of the World.
  • Our website with further translated information by Doctors of the World, please check the date of the latest update. 
  • Our Employment Rights Hub for information about different employment rights plus details of what to do if you're having trouble at work - translated into 20 languages.
