This TSRC (Third Sector Research Centre) webinar (i.e. a web-based seminar) will discuss the role of social enterprise in working with migrant groups. The Webinar will include case studies from migrant groups and organisations that have already set up social enterprises. (Speaker: Alessio D’Angelo, Middlesex University and TSRC Social Enterprise Research Capacity Building Cluster).

Middlesex University’s Social Policy Research Centre is conducting research about local authorities in England and Wales and their level of support for social and community enterprise. As part of this we are undertaking an e-mail based survey which we would like your local authority to participate in. The findings of the research will enhance knowledge of local authority policies and initiatives on social and community enterprise and assist future strategy and policy making.
A similar study was conducted by us in 1992 and 2002 so the findings of this present survey will provide a unique insight into trends in social and community enterprise activity over the past 20 years.
The research team includes: Mel Evans, Alessio D’Angelo, Magdolna Lorinc and Malcolm Read.
Between Spring and Summer 2012 I will be coordinating this community-based research project on the welfare and advice needs of Turkish and Kurdish communities in London – with a particular focus on the North London area. The project is a partnership between Middlesex University and Day-Mer Turkish and Kurdish Community Centre (in Hackney, London). For further information download the project leaflet.
