Fieldwork update! We are currently conducting online interviews with Polish essential workers in the UK and key stakeholders providing support to migrant workers in the country. If you wish to get involved in the study either as a Polish essential worker or someone who works with migrant workers, please contact us: HERE.
Our online survey is now closed. We wish to thank all respondents for taking the time to contribute and sharing thoughts. We have over 1,000 responses, which is a fantastic result. The aim of the survey is to map Covid-19 impacts on Polish essential workers in the UK. The survey was live for eight weeks and was promoted via social media (incl. targeted Facebook adverts), with the help of our partner organisations and via chain referral. Thank you everyone who helped spread the word! More details soon.
We have launched our online survey today! The aim of the survey is to map Covid-19 impacts on Polish essential workers in the UK. It is anonymous, dual-language (English and Polish) and will remain live for eight weeks until 12 April 2021. The survey participants can opt in to take part in a draw to win a £100 or £50 voucher. Are you Polish and work in the UK in one of the essential work sectors? Do you know anyone who may want to get involved? Please, spread the word! Details: HERE
We are very excited to welcome Dr Paulina Trevena to our team! Paulina is an expert in Polish and Eastern European migration to the UK. Her work has focused on lived experiences of social and geographical mobility, work and employment, mental health, well-being, and integration. She has a strong track record in policy-oriented research, including commissioned work for the Scottish Government, a prestigious Academic Fellowship with the Scottish Parliament, and collaboration with charities. We are so lucky to have you, Paulina!
We are thrilled to say that the project started in November 2020 and will run until May 2022. As any research project, it will involve a few months of preparation before the fieldwork begins in early 2021. Check up this site for updates!
