The Supporting Roma Voice project at the University of Salford has aimed to address knowledge gaps in the way in which the inclusion of migrant Roma in the UK is being addressed. The research was designed in partnership with a team of researchers from the Roma communities and undertaken wholly by these researchers in areas including Glasgow. The research study aimed to explore the following issues:
- The settlement and integration experiences of Roma migrants living in areas across the UK.
- The specific areas of community relations, housing, education, employment and social welfare and their role in settlement in the UK.
- The provision of knowledge that would enable local authorities and other services to enhance the settlement experience of Roma migrants now and in the future.
