The Migrants Resource Centre is to change its name to Consonant.

The charity, which merged with Asylum Aid in 2016, helps migrants, refugees and asylum seekers with their immigration status, to learn English and to find work.

The MRC said the new name, which means to be in agreement or harmony with, was derived from the Latin consonantem, meaning "sounding together".

The charity said: "It reflects an ambitious new strategy to promote partnerships between people of diverse origins and meaningfully engage a broader group of businesses and other stakeholders in immigration and integration issues."

The new brand, which has been drawn up on a pro-bono basis by the branding and communications agency Curious, will start be used by the charity from April, alongside a new website.

Wayne Myslik, chief executive of MRC, said: "At the core of our new brand is the idea that Britain can be a place where everyone can belong and achieve their potential.

"Regardless of their starting point, Consonant will help people to live better lives, whether that means living in a safe environment without conflict or violence, learning a new language to get a fulfilling job, or working with neighbours to improve communities for everyone who lives in them."
