Reader’s letter: Armley training programme connects migrants to key services

Venue: Armley Community Hub

Sir;- I’m writing to share information about an opportunity through the Leeds City Council Migrant Access Project (also known as MAP).

The MAP project will be facilitating an eight-week training programme in the Armley Community Hub and Library (2 Stocks Hill, Armley, Leeds LS12 1UQ) from Monday, 22 April. It will be held every Monday morning from 10am-12.30pm (avoiding school holidays and bank holidays).

The aim of the programme is to connect new and emerging communities with key services, to help navigate life in Leeds. There will be guest speakers from organisations and services such as West Yorkshire police, Public Health, Department of Work and Pensions, the Lifelong University and more, and sessions will cover topics such as housing, community safety, work and money, education and ESOL, healthcare and vaccinations, and advocacy.

People who have attended the training held in Beeston last year have shared their experience in a short film.

If you or anyone you know would like to know more about the opportunity, or express interest to attend, please email:

Fareen Hassan, Migrant Access Project Team
