The EOU’s vision is to contribute to a diverse and coherent society based on the principles of equality and social justice, where the needs of refugees and migrants are recognised and where refugees and migrants have a safe and fulfilling life from fear, prejudice, discrimination and stigma.
The EOU is committed to be inspired by the needs of Refugee and Migrant Community Organisation (RMCO). Thus, we aim to provide services and support that will enable RMCOs to fulfill their potential and to make a positive contribution to the wider society.
The charity’s objects are to promote for the public benefit, all charitable purposes by the following:
A). To develop, provide, facilitate and co-ordinate the provision of specialist aid and support services in order to further the charitable work of organisations assisting disadvantaged people in particular but not exclusively the unemployed, people with low levels of literacy, older people, people with disabilities, people with long term health conditions and ethnic minorities particularly refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in the UK or Internationally.
B). To provide advocacy and services in particular but not exclusively for disadvantaged people including the unemployed, people with low levels of literacy, older people, people with disabilities, people with long term health conditions and ethnic minorities particularly refugees, asylum seekers, and migrants who are in conditions of need, hardship or distress.
We believe that we have a critical role in maximising the opportunities available to RMCOs and in achieving a stronger collective voice for positive change. We celebrate diversity, promote equality.
