Residents urged to join integration project

May 25 2021

Everyday Integration is a collaborative research project between University of Bristol, Bristol City Council and over thirty community organisations across the city. The project examines the everyday contexts and practices of integration in Bristol and is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council. Further information about the project can be found on its website here: https://everydayintegration.org.uk/
The project would like to interview a selection of residents in Westbury-on-Trym about their experiences in their local neighbourhood. Senior Research Associate Dr Natalie Hyacinth says: “We are interested in social dynamics across the city, such as how, when, and where people meet up with friends, family, neighbours, and also sometimes strangers in their neighbourhoods. We are also interested in interviewing people who may find it difficult to meet up with others.   
“While we welcome applications from people of all ages and backgrounds living in Westbury-on-Trym to apply, we are particularly interested in interviewing residents of diverse backgrounds.”
Interviews take one hour, online and you will receive a £20 high street voucher as a thank you for your time. A community feedback session about the interviews and research will be organised in the coming months in which participants will be invited to see how their thoughts and experiences have contributed to the research and to making Bristol a better, more integrated place to live.  
If you would like to take part in an interview, please contact Natalie on natalie.hyacinth@bristol.ac.uk
