This working paper presents findings from qualitative research conducted from December to May 2013 to explore the impact of restrictions and entitlements on family migrants in the UK. As a strand of the IMPACIM project, it aims to explain how the entitlements and restrictions for family migrants’ access to employment, healthcare, education, social housing, welfare and civic participation may influence their integration. Our evidence however also showed that there was a range of additional barriers that get in the way to accessing some services and benefits. These are considered alongside the formal rights in place.
