Creating a MiFriendly City

We want the communities of Coventry, Birmingham and Wolverhampton to take the lead in unlocking their cities assets, coming together to drive change at both city and regional levels.

Our regional migration initiative not only sets out a programme of activities for migrants, but looks to engage with employers and the wider public to build a stronger community.

About MiFriendly Skills

Learning new skills can unlock so many doors, and we want to ensure that in our MiFriendly Cities, the potential of all citizens is nurtured, enhance and recognised.
Our skills initiative is aimed at identifying skills gaps in the West Midlands and creating pathways towards further education and employment opportunities for refugees and migrants.
We have put together an innovative training programme that will benefit all communities and acknowledges the region’s aspirations to become the centre for advanced manufacturing in Europe.
