Intercultural and Community Mediation Services (ICMS)

Objectives

The Intercultural and Community Mediation Service (ICMS) is an initiative offered by the Psycho-pedagogical Office of the Mutxamel Town Hall whose main objective is to promote intercultural coexistence and social inclusion of the migrant population residing in the municipality.

This is a service aimed largely at assisting the migrant population, the main purpose being that of promoting equal educational opportunities and promoting migrants’ social inclusion into our host society by providing information and guidance on topics related to immigration and access to the city’s public and community resources, essentially with regard to the schooling of minors. Likewise, the service aims at assisting the local population, Spaniards who were born abroad, and returnees.
