Following an earlier report on these migrants\u2019 experiences at work, this
study explores their access to information, advice and English classes, their
accommodation, leisure time, social contact with British people and long-term
intentions. The relationship between migrants and other residents has come
under the spotlight in recent debates on \u2018integration\u2019 and \u2018social cohesion\u2019 but
there has been little evidence on Eastern European migrants and this study
helps to \ufb01 ll that gap.
Based on a survey of more than 600 migrants working in the UK before and
after enlargement of the EU on 1 May 2004, the study provides unique insights
into their experiences. Highlighting some of the challenges new migrants face, it
makes a strong case for reviewing national policy towards them.
