Our strategic vision is to be a leading organisation in advancing the social integration of migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers in the UK by:
- Facilitating, advancing, and supporting the full economic, social and cultural integration of migrants.
- Advocating and lobbying the needs of migrants within local and central public services and other agencies on their behalf so that their problems are understood and action is taken to address these.
- Narrowing the gap between neglected and socially excluded newcomers from A8 Eastern European countries and from ex-communist bloc countries, including Belorussian, Ukrainian and Russian communities.
Our aim is to relieve poverty among disadvantaged groups from Central and Eastern Europe and neighbouring countries, which include refugees and migrants by the provision of the mentoring, befriending and supportive services, delivering information, advice and guidance and making these services accessible in response to the challenges of a migration process.
EQUALITY: We endeavour to provide inclusiveness to all, so Eastern European migrants will have fair access to services, premises, jobs and other opportunities. The core of our job is to help them to overcome barriers they face and this we monitor regularly
INDEPENDENCE: We will always act in the interests of our clients, without influence from any outside bodies
IMPARTIALITY: We do not judge our clients or make any assumptions about them. Our service is open to all Eastern Europe, Ukrainian and Russian communities. We treat everyone equally
CONFIDENTIALITY: We will not pass on any information provided by a client, – or even the fact that they have visited us – without their permission. We will only release the information to particular agencies, listed in our Confidentiality Policy, that ensure the successful fulfilment of the ECN business and in the best interests of our clients. We adhere to the Data protection Act 1984, which allows holding and sharing specific information about our clients where it is required by law or as a part of legal procedures.
