IRMO is a community-led organisation that supports the Latin American community, both Spanish and Portuguese speaking. We provide Latin Americans migrants with tools and information to build fulfilled, independent, and integrated lives in the UK. We do this through a flexible and comprehensive approach addressing needs in a) Education and employment support (ESOL classes, development of skills) and b) Advice (migration, housing, benefits, schooling). IRMO's Volunteer Scheme offers personal support and career development for volunteers interested in education, advice, management, languages, and community support. Our current projects and services include: English language classes for adults, young people, and children; support of ‘underemployed' Latin Americans working in low-paid, low-skilled jobs to access relevant work opportunities; creative and cultural activities for young people and children; advice and practical support for parents regarding access to school; advice on immigration issues, such as obtaining permission to work, bringing relatives and applying for residency; advising on welfare, benefits, and housing.
