Connecting Opportunities works with new migrants to develop their skills and opportunities to find work and be part of the local community.
Ten organisations that specialise in working with migrants are offering tailored support, cultural orientation, English language classes and other training across West Yorkshire and part of North Yorkshire (Craven, Harrogate, Selby and York).
The project will also create new local connections, with opportunities for local people to be volunteer mentors and befrienders, and for employers to provide work placements to help people get a foothold in the job market.
Connecting Opportunities is funded by the European Social Fund and the National Lottery, through the Big Lottery Fund.
