In collaboration with Policy Scotland and the Network for Social and Educational Equity, Children’s Neighbourhoods Scotland is undertaking a programme of research and intelligence gathering in high poverty settings across Scotland that seeks to understand how local responses are working in the current rapidly changing context, and provide insights that can support the next phase of COVID-19 action at both local and national levels.
This document is part of a series that shares regular insights emerging from the research.
This briefing is based on research undertaken in June and July with frontline practitioners working with refugee and migrant families in Glasgow. The briefing highlights how this crisis has exacerbated existing inequalities within these communities related to housing, the labour market and language barriers; focusing in on the vulnerabilities facing asylum seekers and the Roma population.
