BARNSLEY Council is wanting to speak to migrants across the borough as part of its ‘A Day in the Life’ research.

It follows on from the original research throughout the pandemic which was hailed a success, and now the council is starting a new research on migrant experiences, thanks to funding from the Department for Health and Social Care.

They’re working with community champions, its health integration, NHS Test and Trace and Barnsley’s Feels Like Home community group to understand migrants’ views on a number of factors.

Julia Burrows, the town’s director of public health, said: “The Day in the Life of research has proved invaluable in my annual public health reports, as it tells us how residents are feeling about their health and wellbeing.

“We’re pleased to have received funding from the DHSC to continue this type of research to better understand and work with our migrant communities.

“We want to remove any barriers and make sure every person living or working in Barnsley has good mental and physical health.”
