North West Migrants Forum

Who we are

The North West Migrants Forum (NWMF) is a network of individuals working together to tackle racial inequality and prejudice. Based in Derry/Londonderry, NWMF was first founded in 2012 with the fundamental goal of supporting and advising members of black and minority ethnic (BAME) communities who reside in Northern Ireland.

Our Vision

Our vision is for a tolerant, pluralistic, and diverse Northern Ireland where migrants, refugees and people from traditional cultures in Northern Ireland can live, work and celebrate together- both their differences and similarities -in a welcoming and safe environment .

What we do

We offer support and advice through a variety of means including running funded events and projects that will educate participants, from BAME and traditional communities, and encourage them to challenge negative perceptions and policies that affect them while also gaining skills and confidence to make change happen. 



We also offer advice in the areas of health services, legal, practical support,
social and educational integration, benefits, employment, housing, discrimination and much more.
