Pine Court is among a number of housing associations to sign up to the migrant pledge.
Pine Court and other Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) providers have agreed to the three-point promise to provide fair treatment to migrants.
The pledge was launched at the Migrants’ Access to Housing Conference in London and is backed by the National Housing Federation and BMENational.
Pine Court have agreed to:
- Provide a safe and welcoming environment to migrants seeking someone they can trust.
- Train staff and board members so that they are able to be informed advocates for vulnerable migrants.
- Engage with staff, communities and partners to increase understanding of the issues facing migrants and to break down prejudice.
Cym D’Souza, chair of BMENational, said: “Across the country we work alongside many other housing associations already having a huge positive impact and we would encourage them all to commit to the pledge too.”
