Towards a Multi-Cultural Carlow: Integration and Inclusion of Ethnic Minority Communities in Carlow
How can we make Carlow a more inclusive place?

This questionnaire is open to all ethnic minority communities and foreign-born nationals who live / work in Carlow. It is also open to the children (first generation) of migrants.

The Carlow Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) along with partner agencies, are preparing a three-year strategy to promote the integration of foreign-born nationals who live in Carlow, through funding from Carlow County Council and the Carlow SICAP Programme. The purpose of the strategy is to make Carlow a more welcoming and inclusive place, and to eliminate all forms of prejudice and intolerance.

As part of this process, the GESERA Institute for Action Research has been engaged to independently undertake a consultation exercise with those who have made Carlow their home from abroad and those who are the children of migrants. This questionnaire is part of that consultation exercise.

All questionnaires are anonymous, and responses will be treated with complete confidentiality. You will not be identified in any way, and your participation is greatly appreciated.

Any questions or queries should be addressed to Brendan O’Keeffe at

Ethical Considerations
In this questionnaire, you will be asked some questions about yourself, including your nationality, occupation and background. Principally, you will be asked about your experiences of life in Ireland and Carlow. There are no compulsory questions, and you may skip any question, if you wish. It take approximately ten minutes to complete the questionnaire.
Your responses will be used to inform the inclusion / integration strategy, and specifically to guide the LCDC in deciding which groups, if any, to prioritise. There are no risks or implications for you.
All responses are completely confidential and anonymous, and we are not tracking your details, in any way. All data will be destroyed, within a defined period, after the research has been completed and will not be given to any third party.
Carlow College REAC and IT Carlow have granted ethical approval for this research.
