The Social Policy Research Centre at Middlesex University is currently working with Hounslow Borough Council to map the characteristics, needs and current use of services of 6 communities identified by the council as ‘newest and emerging’. These include: Afghan, Burmese, Sri-Lankan, Algerian, Bulgarian and Romanian.
As part of the research the SPRC will also produce a directory of relevant voluntary and community organisations working with the six groups, identifying examples of best practice, both in Hounslow and across London.
The project adopts a community engagement approach and is undertaken in partnership with the West London BMER Network and Acton Community Forum.
