This report presents the findings of a study looking at the needs and experiences of migrant workers living and working in Bolton. The research was commissioned by Bolton at Home, Bolton Community Homes and Bolton Council and was conducted by a team of researchers from the Salford Housing & Urban Studies Unit at the University of Salford. The primary aims of the study were: to establish the extent and level of in-migration of the migrant worker community from EU Accession states (A8/A2) into the Bolton Study Area; to understand the settlement patterns of these communities in Bolton (including where families are joining workers); to identify the nature and extent of kinship and/or economic relationships with others across the UK and /or abroad; to assess the skills levels and expertise of new communities, including entrepreneurship and self employment, and identify what support is needed to foster these skills now and in the future; to investigate the level of community integration and impact on community cohesion and develop support mechanisms to assist migrant communities to integrate within the local resident community; and to evaluate the housing and support needs of this community now and in the future.
