The North West Regional Strategic Migration Partnership (RSMP) is paid for by the Home Office and the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, and run with support from Manchester City Council. We are led by local authorities, but work with many different organisations to help the area with migration.
There are four main parts to our work:
- Asylum Seekers: We work with local authorities, the Home Office and the voluntary sector colleagues to make sure that asylum seekers are not in danger. We provide advice, information and guidance, including news and statistics.
- Unaccompanied Asylum-Seeking Children: We help children who are seeking asylum, but do not have any adults to support them.
- Refugee Resettlement: We administer and coordinate a number of refugee resettlement schemes in North West England, on behalf of the Home Office and the United Nations
- ESOL Mapping: We have a list of organisations who teach English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)
The RSMP works in with various organisations across the North West and the UK. These include:
- Local authorities.
- Combined authorities in Liverpool and Greater Manchester.
- The NHS and Public Health England.
- Local NHS groups in the North West.
- Home Office
- Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities
- Serco, the housing provider chosen by the Home Office.
- Voluntary and community groups.
