The Roma Support Group is a major contributor to Roma and Brexit, a recently-published report on the future for Roma in post-Brexit UK. The report, from the Gypsy, Roma and Traveller (GRT) and Migration Joint All Party Parliamentary Groups, is the result of discussions at a roundtable event at the House of Lords on 11 July 2018. The event was co-ordinated by the Roma Support Group.
Roma living in the UK have a huge contribution to make to society and they greatly value living here, working here and being part of the UK community. Yet this is not always understood and recognised. Furthermore, uncertainties about the future status of EU nationals in the UK are a cause for considerable uncertainty among members of the Roma community. We hope that this initial report will be of interest to policy makers in this regard.
