Immigration can be a highly contentious issue in the UK and World Habitat 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.
