Civil Society Monitoring report on the implementation of the National Roma Integration strategy in the UK in 2012 and 2013


This report raises concerns about the lack of funding and support for Gypsy, Traveller and Roma engagement in civil society. While there is evidence of a number of projects being led by community groups in the UK, these initiatives are predominantly underfunded and, consequently, these communities are rarely represented in the political area.


The report finds that the growing migrant Roma communities seem to be the most marginalised in decision making processes across the UK, with only a few local support groups in operation. The report questions the commitment of UK Authorities to the core approaches contained within the 10 Common Basic Principles of Roma Inclusion. The report calls upon the UK administrations to enter into a real partnership with Gypsies, Travellers and Roma to form a series of taskforces, to inform and guide future policy to ensure that the community members are seen as equal citizens.
