Our Vision

Latin Americans living in the UK are empowered to fulfil their potential and are able to fully and equally access services and opportunities.

Our Mission

IRMO is a community-led organisation that provides Latin Americans with tools and information in an empowering process to build fulfilled, independent and integrated lives in the UK using a rights-based approach.

We do this through a flexible and comprehensive approach addressing a wide range of needs at a number of levels. Our work with the community spans three main pillars:

  • Education, training and employment
  • Advice and case-work
  • Wellbeing

In addition, we have a cross-cutting pillar, which is campaigning for the rights of all migrant communities. Building on over three decades experience, we aim to build a stronger and more resilient community.

Our Values

COMMITMENT: We are driven by our commitment to social justice for the Latin American Community. We learn from our experiences and are creative in our approach to overcoming challenges. We act with care and responsibility in our delivery, being accountable for our work and services.

COMMUNITY: We provide a warm, friendly and kind environment for everybody. We recognise, welcome and celebrate our diverse community by encouraging and fostering respect, dignity and connections across all who are part of IRMO.

TRANSPARENCY: We communicate about our work and services in an open, honest and accessible way to all stakeholders.

COLLABORATIVE: We recognise that working together with our community, partners and funders serves to strengthen and improve our work. We value the knowledge, skills and experience of our service users, and we work together to create lasting change.

SOLIDARITY: We stand alongside all migrants and others fighting for social justice, placing ourselves within the migrant movement and valuing the strength in our collective experiences, work and unity.
