Integration Support Services (ISS) is a small charity based in Harlow, West Essex. ISS was founded by a group of migrant volunteers, passionate about making a difference to other people's lives. ISS was founded in 2004 and was registered as a charity in 2007. The charity's mission is to help migrants, refugees, asylum seekers and the BME community to successfully integrate in the British society, which is achieved through a variety of services delivered by the charity.

Integration Support Services are looking for enthusiastic, open minded and forward thinking individuals who have spare time to assist with governance of the charity by joining our board.
“I got involved with Integration Support Services because I was inspired by ISS staff members whom I met at the local Play and Learn sessions! I believe that it is vital to be passionate and motivated about the cause. As a trustee I have been able to use and develop accounting skills to address issues the charity faced at that time. Volunteering for ISS helped me to build my understanding of the challenges faced by others. Lana, Former ISS Trustee “
