More About Us

Launched in 2020 by the founding father of community organising, the late Neil Jameson CBE, our core mission is to grow and shape the future of community-led resettlement in the UK and to help build a migration policy consensus that works for everyone.

We model innovative ways of welcoming newcomers to the UK, taking careful account of the views and priorities of local communities.

We help to build friendships of trust and reciprocity between new and existing residents.

We form and equip leadership teams made up of both who listen to local people and respond to their needs.

We especially encourage people with different backgrounds, views and life experience to come together in friendship and work together for the good of their local community.

By taking this approach we hope to build a settled consensus based on a migration policy that is realistic, sustainable, effective and works for everyone.

We are a registered Charity (1195770) and Company (12679315) with a shared vision of a more welcoming world for all.
