The research methods: Achieving the aims

Between May 2020 – May 2021* the research team will collaborate with workers and members of migrant families to:

Understand the realities, and main issues for social care workers supporting migrant families.

Understand the realities, and main issues for migrant families using social care services.

Create ways to explore these experiences.

Identify responses to these issues.

Develop ways to share what is learnt with others. 

The research team will do this by spending time developing relationships and understanding how workers and migrant families communicate, and by organising creative workshops, focus groups and interviews.

*COVID19: Due to COVID19 social distancing measures, the research team are currently working with social care staff using online methods and will work with migrant families when face-to-face work is possible. We will continue to review our research plan as social-distancing measures change.
