OF CIVIL SOCIETY ORGANISATIONS WORKING FOR MIGRANTS AND REFUGEES
The Consortium of civil society organisations working for migrants and refugees consists of 9 NGOs sharing common values and a vision of how Poland and Europe should be co-created by migrants and refugees. Our activities are based on:
- respect for the dignity of all people,
- providing protection and adequate support to all migrants and refugees,
- strengthening the sense of solidarity of Polish women and men with other people,
- building community of all people living in Poland, regardless of their legal status, nationality or other personal characteristics.
Our mission is to work on behalf of refugees and migrants, so that each and every one of them can fully enjoy their rights and freedoms. We want to create a broad platform for joint activities, exchange of experiences, improving the quality of work and public debate on migration and integration in Poland.
We are close to migrants and refugees, we listen to their needs and try to respond to them and include their representatives in our activities. We are at the centre of crisis situations, when they arise, to help solve them in a constructive way.
The Consortium is a democratic platform of cooperation through which the activities of its member organisations are coordinated in order to make better use of the resources available in each organisation and to share them with others.
Our activities include: counselling and support for migrants (legal, psychological, social, vocational); integration and information activities for Polish women and men and migrants; Polish language courses; monitoring the social and political situation regarding migration, drafting visionary and strategic programme documents.
