The Project in Short:

The INVOLVIM project is aimed at the development of informal and volunteer services for immigrants in partner regions. By sharing project experiences, its goal is to influence political instruments in the regions to improve services for immigrants and prevent social exclusion. The focus is on working immigrants and their needs for support in integration, housing, education and other areas. Employers, education providers, public authorities and others have the potential to provide different services for this group, allowing for better adaptation and integration.
