Lo pleased that Belfast Migrant Centre is given funding by Big Lottery Fund

South Belfast Alliance MLA Anna Lo has welcomed news that Belfast Migrant Centre which is already operational, is being given funding by the Big Lottery Fund to allow them to have their own premises and provide services.

Anna Lo MLA, who is the Chair of the all-party group in the Assembly on ethnic minorities said: “This is excellent news. Education, training and support services like this are very important to assist minority ethnic people and migrants here to ensure sure they are aware of their rights. This is a brilliant project and I am very pleased about this funding announcement.

“It’s often very difficult for people when they arrive somewhere new to get information on services or training and this project is very useful. The fact that we have this project and it is receiving this funding will send out a very positive message that we are responding to the needs of migrant workers and minority ethnic people here.”
