This event is organised in collaboration between SSAMIS, GREC and CPAG and will bring together research findings and recommendations from projects undertaken with, by and about migrant communities in Scotland. It will focus on supporting the development of evidence-based practice and offer practical resources and recommendations for those involved in service provision, advocacy and advice agencies, crisis support and policy-making at local, regional and national levels.
Themes relating to employment, poverty, family issues and the importance of community development responses will be highlighted through the day.
Practical initiatives that have developed as a result of several of the projects involving local communities and partners will be showcased, and participants will be invited to showcase examples of good practice from their own work.
There will be opportunities for facilitated discussion and a focus on changing policy and practice at local, regional and national levels.
