About the Project
The aims were to provide community perspectives on reducing barriers to economic inclusion for women and young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds in Melbourne’s west.
The target audience for the Community Conversations project was young people and women from refugee and migrant backgrounds living in Melbourne’s west.
Between March and July 2020, methodology and research questions were designed through a series of scoping workshops with CMY and MCWH. Individual phone interviews were conducted in August and September.
COVID-19 and the resulting lockdown disproportionately impacted young people and women and the communities they live in.
