Refugees, asylum seekers and ethnic minorities

Social exclusion issues are often multiple in nature, inevitably linked and have spiralling consequences for vulnerable people in Cornwall. Economic, social and environmental issues such as worklessness, barriers to education, barriers to employment, vulnerable migrant workers, poverty and poor health are not the responsibility of only one organisation and must be addressed through a coordinated approach.


Inclusion Cornwall will look forward, challenge barriers and poor practices. Increase understanding, participation and improve the quality of life within Cornwall.


Unity Cornwall is the first black and minority ethnic (BME) lead organisation in Cornwall & Isles of Scilly. Unity Cornwall's Management Committee members are individuals from a variety of different ethnic minority backgrounds who do their upmost to represent their own communities living in Cornwall & Isles of Scilly.


The Immigration Advisory Service (IAS) is the UK’s largest charity providing representation and advice in immigration and asylum law.
