Innovation and Collaboration to Optimize the Settlement and Well-Being of Refugees During COVID-19
March 30 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
In this workshop two collaborative projects will be presented. An analysis will be provided that explores the experiences of six GAR families resettling at the time the pandemic was declared. This provides the sector with an opportunity to understand the impacts and implications of COVID-19 on settlement. Additionally, a collaborative approach to support the dissemination of culturally informed COVID-19 public health information within the Yazidi community in London, On will be discussed. This project demonstrates the essential nature of cross-sectoral collaboration and the timely response that is needed in reaching targeted communities during the pandemic.
