See below five values we are asking member organisations to uphold. Scroll down to sign up your organisation to become a member!


We are committed to working towards improving the representation of people with lived experience of the asylum/migration at all levels of organisation and across different roles and departments, including management and leadership roles where there is real decision-making power.


We work towards achieving coproduction and meaningful involvement of people with lived experience of the migration and asylum system. We recognise the genuine value brought by the people with lived experience in the workforce. We believe that choice is essential in disclosing lived experience and we support appropriate disclosure and consent, alongside embedding trauma-informed practices to reduce harm.


We aim to provide and bring together diverse insights, including those with lived experience in immigration and asylum sector, in our recruitment practices. We are committed to combat stigma and institutional racism, and promote an inclusive culture in our organisation.


We challenge one-size-fits-all approach in our employment practices, and respect personal circumstances and needs of Experts by Experience when advertising our roles. We believe that every individual should have the right support when applying for our roles.


We aim to make sure we are clear and accessible in our communication, and offer opportunities to give further information and support in our recruitment practices.
