Forum for migrants to share issues

New immigrants to New Zealand will discuss their concerns and share feedback about their migration experience at a forum in Auckland this month.

Auckland Regional Migrant Services (ARMS) is reconvening its Local Settlement Network Meeting at Auckland’s Fickling Centre  on 23 February.

It is an important opportunity for local service providers and newcomers to network and share ideas; identify issues being experienced by our Auckland Central migrants and refugee communities; and find ways to collaborate on those issues, says Shoma Prasad, regional communications and marketing coordinator for ARMS.

The objective of the forum is “to explore good practice ideas for assisting newcomers (migrants and refugees) to acquire key/relevant skills and knowledge to gain employment – from a range of perspectives,” says Prasad.

Date: Thursday, 23 February 2012
