Empower Women for Change is  proud to announce our partnership with Glasgow University on its research on the health and social  impact of COVID-19 measures on the lives of vulnerable communities in Scotland. We as an organisation have over the years worked on different projects to support women and our local ethnic minority community highlighting their challenges and helping them achieve their potential. This project adds up to our COVID-19 support projects and we aim to further bring to light the contributions of our community and challenges faced as a result of COVID-19.

The four focus groups (streams) of the research:

We are actively involved in  representing the voice of our service users that are currently seeking asylum or possessing a refugee status in Scotland. We strongly believe that this research is extremely important in reflecting on the current living situation of vulnerable people in Scotland.
