Migrant Roma in the United Kingdom: population size and experiences of local authorities and partners

It provides an estimate of the size of the Eastern European Roma community now resident in the UK, and its locations, and also includes an analysis of qualitative data gathered from both local authority workers and partner agencies, in particular the nature and extent of their engagement with Roma, and the significant issues observed.
