East Cambridgeshire is attracting people as a place to live and work from across the world and in particular from Eastern Europe. This is becoming an established pattern, which is supporting the local economy (particularly in agriculture) and meaning that East Cambridgeshire is becoming a more culturally diverse district.
Migrants within East Cambridgeshire can experience a number a different issues when working and living in the district, and the District Council can assist with some of these. In particular, the Council has been awarded funding through the Migration Impacts Fund, to research the living conditions or migrant workers in the district and ensuring that their homes are decent.
