Chinese migrants: Their experiences in their own words

Wai Yin Chinese Women’s Society and Research Institute for Health and Social Change

What is life like for Chinese migrants who come to the UK?

As part of a project on Chinese migrant workers, this collection of stories lets them describe their experiences in their own words.

It explores:

  • what draws people from China to the UK;
  • how they made the move;
  • their experiences when they get here;
  • how they build a new life.

It shows:

  • how difficult it can be to move to better jobs here;
  • how vulnerable they are; and
  • reveals the impact on family and relationships.

Finally, it examines how people decide if they should stay or leave, and what stops them escaping exploitation.
