Pairity is an end-to-end platform for refugee newcomer integration. It works with local partners to match newcomers with volunteers, and then evaluate the impacts of access to social networks on integration. Working locally means low costs and barriers to participation, while harnessing the best aspects of community sponsorship. Pairity was designed to be scalable, adaptable, and meet the high bar for evidence-based policy. It is grounded in an interdisciplinary research project to generate evidence about social networks, integration, and social cohesion.

Monitoring & Evaluation
Pairity is backed by a long-term academic research project examining the effects of social networks on integration. This includes short-term evaluation exercises for local contexts.
Pairity’s process ensures we can measure the real impact of social networks on outcomes including labour market participation, language skills, and community integration.
