Last year the organisation supported and engaged with over 50 individuals from over 25 countries, and delivered sessions on immigration, job search and CV writing, English language support, active mums, and working with those affected by uncertainties of the Brexit outcome. Fife Migrants Forums a community-led and migrants' managed organisation, set up 2010, registered as a Scottish Charity in 2012. The agency was set up by members of migrant ethnic minority and Fife communities to work with the growing numbers of new migrants coming to Fife, generally with limited command of English language. They work to integrate migrants and minority ethnic communities within Fife communities assisting social cohesion through a range of projects and interventions. Through adopting a human rights approach, our work centers on addressing inequality, reducing poverty and deprivation and, critically, linking people who can be 'hard to reach' from the migrant and minority communities into mainstream provision. We support both the person and the agency; offering language and cultural understanding, advocacy, and two -way interpretation of information and issues. Their work encompasses crisis preventative intervention and is increasingly concerned with assisting people, who are committed to stay, raise families and work in Fife to integrate within 'host' communities and become active and participative citizens.
