645 Migrant workers and parish and town councils

This paper is summarised from a presentation by Crispin Moor, Director of the Commission for Rural Communities (CRC) Whitehall office, to the National Association of Local Councils at their annual conference in May 2008.

Year of Publication2008

Over the past four years rural areas have experienced over 200% growth in the number of migrant workers. Many communities and local public services have little experience of them and they are not always treated fairly. There are good examples now where councils, sometimes with employers, are working hard to ensure the voices of migrants are heard and help is at hand. The CRC is researching the likely future economic impacts of migrants.
