Browse our research briefings and publications, or consult our database listing research about migrants in Yorkshire and Humber, using the menu on the left of the page.

Our current research includes work for the Communities Up Close and Refugee Integration Yorkshire and Humber projects, as well as work on Welcoming Young Refugees, which is profiled below.

How can we do better at helping young refugees settle in and adapt to life in the UK?

We're consulting young refugees and their foster carers and social workers, trying to really understand the experience of arriving in a new country alone, at a young age; and the experience of foster carers as they meet a young person for the first time, someone who may speak no English, be confused, frightened and traumatised.

To find out more about young refugees' perceptions and experiences, our researcher worked intensively with a small number of young people across Yorkshire and Humber. Part of this work included a group of young people producing digital stories, in which they tell us something they want to share in their own words, using their own images and techniques.

It outlines priorities from the young refugees’ perspective, and has great illustrations by one of the young people who participated in the research and digital storytelling project. 

We'll publish the full research report soon.
