This is the first bulletin of the COVID-19 Information and Data Hub. It contains the findings of data from 94 organisations.

This includes a survey of 51 migration and refugee organisations carried out by Refugee Action, and headlines from a survey of member organisations by the No Accommodation Network (NACCOM). Pages 1 – 6 report the findings of the Refugee Action survey. Pages 7 – 8 contain the NACCOM report.  

The bulletin shows that:

  • There has been a huge increase in levels of food poverty and tech poverty among migrants, refugees and people seeking asylum as a result of the Covid-19 crisis.  
  • The two top challenges facing organisations seeking to support people were a lack of clarity on Home Office policies and processes (47%), and digital skills and technology needed to offer services (also 47%).
  • The biggest long-term concern for organisations was anxiety about future finances (75%) followed by having insufficient management capacity to plan and manage risk around new ways of working. (47%)
