West Midlands migrant ambassadors programme


 Migrant Voice - West Midlands migrant ambassadors programme

Are you active in your community, feel passionate about changing the debate on migration, and concerned about the lack of migrant voices in the media?

If so, this is for you. Migrant Voice is looking for proactive migrants who are keen to develop their skills and knowledge in getting the voices and issues of their communities into the media.

You’ll become one of our migrant ambassadors. We’ll share with you our years of experience and train you in identifying stories in your community and pitching them to the media – and you’ll get plenty of follow-up mentoring and support from us too.

Participants will get a copy of our media toolkit and information about how to contact journalists in the West Midlands. You’ll also become part of our national network of migrant ambassadors and be able to share experiences and learning with them, as well as having access to future media training activities to further build your skills.

The first training will be the only whole day session and will take place in person on Friday 7 October, 10am - 4.30pm at the Birmingham and Midland Institute, 9 Margaret St, Birmingham B3 3BS.

The following sessions will be two hours. Dates for the follow-up sessions will be agreed with participants at the first session.

Participants will be asked to come prepared with a story idea or an issue affecting their community that they want to raise in the media.
