1st – 3rd Generation Migrants - UK COVID-19 Social Distancing Research

University of Essex, Department of Psychology

During this period of social distancing our interactions have become mostly virtual rather than face-to-face which has limited who we can speak to and how we can emotionally support and care for each other. This three-part study will record how the well-being and cultural identities of 1st – 3rd generation migrants is affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Please consider taking this survey if you are a 1st – 3rd generation migrant to the UK who would identify with another culture or nationality as well as or instead of British and you are currently living in the UK during this lockdown.

Your Impact

This study aims to help us develop an understanding of how migrants and those with multiple cultural identities feel they fit into UK society and are supported by their local community, especially during these trying times.
