Supporting Newly Arrived Migrant Students During Lockdown: Community Responses

A knowledge-exchange workshop bringing together NGOs and community practitioners to exchange practices on how to best support newly arrived migrant and refugee students during Covid-19 lockdowns.

This online event will take place on March 18th (2pm-5pm)
To book a place please visit the EventBrite page here.

This is the second in a series of partnership events organised by icPSP (International Centre for Public and Social Policy, University of Nottingham) and NIESR (National Institute of Economic and Social Research). It is supported by the Social Policy Association (SPA).

A background blog from the event’s organisers is available here.

During the event we will disseminate findings from ongoing international research on Covid-19 and school closures, and particularly on what the impact has been for newly arrived migrants in the UK and across Europe.

We will then go into a broad discussion exploring how NGOs, community organisations and local practitioners have worked with migrant and refugee pupils/students, their families and schools, and how best they can support them in the coming months. Attendees will be invited to participate in the discussion and to share their experiences and practice.
