  • A Partnership between Leeds City

    Council Migrant Access Project and

    WYFRS Fire Protection

    Business Support In The Community

  • Background

    • Summer 2014, Leeds – Dangerous conditions were identified with a flat above a takeaway following AFF.

    • The takeaway owner had leased the entire 2 storey building.

    • The flat was rented out privately to an Italian family who spoke virtually no English.

    • Interim measures implemented with reassurance from takeaway owner to stop trading until resolution reached.

  • Conclusion

    • The Migrant Access Project provided access to an Italian Translator at no cost;

    • But the family had vacated to unknown location – Safeguarding issues?

    • Housing officers attended and prohibited the flat.

    • Takeaway owner subjected to a week of loss earnings.

  • Outcomes

    • Recognised the value of each other.

    • Migrant and Refugee training provided to FP Inspectors using FP scenarios and discussion by LCC.

    • Prevent similar situations from reoccurring – How?

    • Multi –Agency working relationship established

  • Migrant Access Project (MAP)

    • Aim: to help reduce pressures on statutory services and support new migrants to settle in Leeds

    • What: Migrant Community Networkers (MCN) – trained community leaders who speak community languages

    • How: over 80 MCNs – spread important information, help integration and active citizenship

  • • Fire Service and MAP – improving engagement with migrant communities, in particular new migrants. Raise awareness. Prevention.

    • Concerns around some new communities accessing accommodation
