Semi-structured interviews

A range of semi-structured interviews were conducted with professionals working with groups and organisations connected to ethnic minorities in the south of Glasgow, as well as representatives of public sector organisations such as Glasgow City Council social services.

These interviews aimed to understand the perspective of these role holders specifically regarding barriers to access to services.

The interviews included key staff within drop-in centres and day centres, Board members and staff from the two local integration networks covering the area, Board members from an ethnic minority self organising group in the area and operational management level social services staff.

These interviews were carried out by the researcher.
