As a result of the increase of foreign population between 2000 and 2007 in the Spanish city of Alcorcon (Madrid), the Municipality decided to create a specific service department to support migrants, defined as “Service of Cultural Mediation” and carried out different projects. One of those is the Commission of Integration, a community service instrument carried out by the Municipality of Alcorcon in conjunction with the different entities specialised in social intervention with migrant people in the territory. The commission meets frequently to address the different issues migrants in Alcorcon face.
In this context, but not only, is where the EPIC partner Solidaridad Sin Fronteras (SSF) has collaborated with the Municipality of Alcorcon for many years.
SSF has been implementing projects for the socio-economic integration of migrant populations since 2010, including the work done by the employment area since 2017.
