Ground-breaking project launched by organisation to support migrant families


"This is a truly pioneering project and is a real opportunity to promote the principles of equalities and social justice - as well as protecting the rights of children and families."
Dr Iyabo Fatimilehin director of Just Psychology,



A pioneering project that aims to support families following serial migration and reduce the likelihood of family breakdown or social services involvement is launching in the North West.

The Family Reunion and Parenting Project - a partnership between Manchester-based social enterprise Just Psychology and charity Rainbow Haven - will include Family Reunion group sessions led by a psychological practitioner.

The sessions will focus on re-building relationships, addressing expectations and helping children and parents talk to each other about their experiences while separated and their hopes and aspirations now they are reunited. 

Alongside these sessions, the project will provide parenting groups, which will improve families’ understanding of UK parenting expectations and child protection laws, as well as encouraging parents to access local resources. 

The project will also recruit and train BME people to deliver cultural consultancy work and peer mentoring for families.

Just Psychology is now recruiting for a registered health and social care practitioner to lead the development and delivery of the project. 

Dr Iyabo Fatimilehin director of Just Psychology, said: “This is a truly pioneering project and is a real opportunity to promote the principles of equalities and social justice - as well as protecting the rights of children and families from black and ethnic minority communities.

“In addition to partnering with Rainbow Haven, we will be working with GMIAU, British Red Cross, and other organisations in Greater Manchester to deliver a whole systems approach.”

This project is funded by the Reaching Communities National Lottery Community Fund and Trafford Housing Trust Social Investment.
