Europia often struggles to find published articles and reports on E&CE Migrants and therefore we are considering focusing on research to gather and disseminate academic reports and conduct further research into relevant topic. Being a small organisation we can only aspire to establish ourselves as a credible and reliable information source. A research dialogue will give Europia an opportunity to hear opinions from the experts.

We would appreciate it if you could take couple of minutes to complete this anonymous  survey to give us some discussion points at the round table conference.

Europia’s past and present research activities

2010

  • Greater Manchester Mapping Exercise: Exploring the needs and experiences of Central and Eastern European (CEE) Migrants- This report was commissioned by the Greater Manchester Voluntary Sector Support (GMVSS) Diversity Steering Group (DSG) and Greater Manchester Centre for Voluntary Organisation (GMCVO). The aim was to gain a better understanding of the needs and experiences of Central and East European (CEE) migrants living and working in Greater Manchester as well as identifying gaps in current service provision.

2011

  • Harpurhey United Community Research Project. This report outlines the findings of the Harpurhey United Community Research Project. This research formed part of a wider project called Harpurhey United: Bringing the world of Harpurhey closer together. Before focusing on the research project findings, this chapter provides a brief overview of the Harpurhey United project.

2014

  • Video report with Salford Health Matters on Czech and Slovak Nationals using A&E instead of the G.P services–  Europia supported Salford Health Matters (SHM)  to undertake a piece of work to explore why and how certain ethnic groups are using A&E services in Eccles. The four target groups are Czech, Slovak, Yemeni and Chinese. Targeted research by SHM shows that three of these groups appear to use A&E services in lieu of going to the GP (ie they are not admitted from A&E)– completed

 

  • Homelessness amongst EEA Migrants– This research project was about homelessness experience in UK by A8 nationals – completed

 

  • Postnatal mental health issues amongst EEA women-maternal mental health in ethnic minority women, focusing on Eastern European women. Exploring their experiences of barriers to help seeking and stigma attached to maternal mental health that they may have experienced e.g. lack of knowledge of available services, social stigma attached to mental health issues, fear, lack of family support etc. – ongoing

 

  • Homelessness amongst Eastern European Migrants– The aims of the study are to determine the causes and the circumstances in which EE Migrants can become homelessness and to explore their experiences of migration, services they have received and social attitudes experienced – ongoing

 

  • Exploring the social implications of raising a bilingual family for European movers living in Manchester – With the implementation of free movement within the European Union, many European citizens have settled in the UK. A significant number of these ‘free movers’ have started a family in the UK and have chosen to give a bilingual and bi cultural upbringing to their children. In order to succeed in their bilingual project, a growing number of parents enroll their children in supplementary/Saturday schools, which serve their specific language and/or national community – ongoing
