Description

We are pleased to announce African Families in the UK(AFiUK)CIC and Integrating Families(IF) upcoming Social Statistics seminar on the topic of migration. The seminar is set to take place at Firstsite Gallery Auditorium, High Street, Lewis Gardens Colchester, CO1 1PG on Tuesday, the 6th March 2018, from 10am to 4pm. There will be Multicultural & Halal food (on sale) including networking opportunity with access to over 10 Black Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME) local community groups who will be having stalls.

Essex’s population has undergone significant changes in recent years, growing both in population size and in the diversity of its communities. People moving to Essex from within the UK as well as migration from overseas has been a major driver of population growth over the last 10 years.

The "Migration in Essex" seminar aims to:

  • Provide valuable insight into migration through statistical analysis,

  • Highlight good practice in relation to the integration of migrants in existing communities,

  • Add depth to the statistics by hearing from 10 local Black Asian Minority (BAME) organisations working directly with migrants in Essex.

The seminar will start with a presentation on statistics by the Head of Migration Statistics from the Office for National Statistics (ONS). This will be followed by a presentation about city and community approaches to the inclusion of newcomers from the Centre for Migration Studies (CMS) and practical knowledge about the provision of services to BAME groups from 10 local organizations. These 10 BAME local organizations and others will have stalls for participants to be able to engage with them during break times.

The two main presentations will last around 20 minutes, with 10 minutes for questions. And the presentations by 10 BAME organizations will be 5 minutes each and if you have specific questions you are welcome to visit their stall during break time.

Please note! No parking at Firstsite, go to Priory Street Parking, off St Botolph's Street or Grey Friars Parking.
