The Resettlement, Asylum and Migration Policy (RAMP) project works with a diverse network of politicians and other leaders seeking to re-imagine a world-class migration system for a successful and integrated Britain. Working across party and sector, we help those with the power to make decisions around Resettlement, Asylum and Migration Policy to find practical and innovative solutions to some of the most pressing challenges facing Britain.
We are hosted by the Good Faith Partnership and have a small team to execute the project, liaise with parliamentarians and senior leaders, manage, and provide support and training when needed. Our team includes a number of policy advisors with experience in this field.
We are working with Fragomen LLP, the largest immigration law firm in the world. Fragomen are providing legal advice, training and development opportunities to our advisors and are on call should any of our team need briefing on technical immigration issues.
We are the Secretariat to the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Migration, which aims to provide a discussion forum for parliamentarians and act as a source of well-evidenced and independent information on key migration issues. The APPG regularly hosts cross-party meetings in Parliament to discuss immigration issues and produces briefing papers and reports to support parliamentary debate.
RAMP is supported by the Barrow Cadbury Fund (company number 00503137), Fragomen LLP, the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, and Unbound Philanthropy and Family Office.
