The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected those living in areas with high levels of deprivation. The pandemic has also exposed the high levels of inequality affecting migrant families in Glasgow. Children’s Neighbourhoods Scotland (CNS) has conducted research on the perspectives of frontline workers who have supported vulnerable migrant families in local neighbourhoods during this time. The findings from this research provide new insights into the impact of COVID-19 on children and families who are living in poverty and who are further disadvantaged on account of their insecure immigration status.
