Immigration can be a highly contentious issue in the UK and BSHF has sought to provide an informed contribution to the debate. In June 2008, our Windsor consultation discussed the topic of migrant workers.
A series of recommended actions were developed to address accommodation issues and create responsive systems to deal with future migration. These recommendations, published in the report Home from Home, are wide-ranging and varied to reflect the diverse impacts that migration can have in different locations and communities. We also produced a summary for environmental health officers, who can play an important role in addressing some of the issues faced by migrant workers.
