Welcome to My Coventry
In July 2020, the EU’s Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund, awarded more than £1.7m to Coventry for the MyCoventry project, a 2-year initiative that will look at addressing local, social and economic inequalities that hinder the way young people and adults from migrant communities interact and become an integral part of Coventry. The AMIF UK Responsible Authority administers AMIF policy in the UK.
The specialist partnership that My Coventry has developed will bridge service gaps, provide mentoring, coaching and holistic interventions to support client progression and integration.
The city-wide partnership between Coventry City Council, the Job Shop, St Francis Employability, ACH, Coventry University and Positive Youth Foundation is part-funded by the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF).
Working together will allow us to capitalise on each organisation’s strengths and knowledge. The project will deliver an exciting programme of activities designed to create opportunities for newly arrived communities.
MyCoventry will help improve language skills and enable new communities to learn and feel a part of the life of the city; as well as boost employment opportunities.
