‘Migrants should be priority for housing providers’

John Perry, policy advisor for CIH and author of the guide, said: "Housing providers need to know more about new communities that exist in the areas in which they work in so they can adequately deliver the appropriate services."

More than one-third of people living in London are foreign born which means migrants are more than likely already a part of housing providers tenants’ profile and this guide is urging social landlords to engage with the issues surrounding providing services to migrant groups.

"This guide will help you identify these communities, understand their needs and enable you to find out about and work with migrant community groups and support organisations," Perry said.
