New Citizens Voice


About Us

New Citizens Voice is a nonprofit organisation founded in 2003. We work to promote civic education and social responsibilities among Britain’s new citizens, who include migrants and refugees with permanent leave to remain in the UK who are eligible to vote. The organisation seeks to encourage the active involvement of non-indigenous citizens in the country’s social, political and economic life.

As new citizens ourselves we are uniquely placed to understand the needs of and engage with new British residents. Our research and experience tells us there is an urgent need for a practical and interactive platform where new citizens can express their hopes and concerns for life in Britain without censorship, and learn about British citizenship through discussion and debate with political, business and community leaders.

Welcome to New Citizens Voice website, we hope you are inspired to become involved or contribute to the development of our project.

NCV and Coronavirus

Restrictions due to Coronavirus have meant putting our programme of workshops on hold until it is safe for us to resume.

We do plan to roll out the New Citizens Radio podcast series over summer 2021. All the work is done remotely.

Funding has been secured from the Community Fund, Comic Relief, Black Training and Enterprise Group (BTEG) and National Emergencies Trust (NET) for two podcast series:

  1. 1. "Young Voices" scheduled release summer 2021, for under 18s.

  2. 2. "Your Voice Matters" for ages 18+ follows in the autumn.

We aim to reach out into the homes of New Citizens and talk directly to them using this popular digital format.

New Citizens Voice podcasts intend to be an interactive and informative platform for discussion of British Citizenship, rights and responsibilities and what it means to be a part of today's British society.
