What is Migration Stories North West?
Migration Stories NW involves a partnership of five organisations across North West England, supported by historians and heritage organisations from around the region. Each partner is working with local adults and young people to research and document histories of migration in and out of the North West from the Roman period to the present day.

Our project outputs will demonstrate how the North West has always been a place of migration, where people have moved in and out from other parts of the British Isles and other parts of the world as a result of conflict, colonialism and trade, as well as in search of work opportunities and a better life.
