Since 2004, many states with a substantial Roma population have gained rights for free mobility and employment across the EU. As a result, many Roma families have migrated from Eastern to Western Europe in search of better opportunities. Glasgow, where this study took place, estimates the Roma groups in the city at about 2,000 Slovak and about 1,000 Romanian individuals. Although Roma arrivals are a recent phenomenon in Glasgow, the concentration of families in the city and a history of marginalisation in their homeland poses specific challenges for local services. In this context, the study presented here, has aimed to gather the views of Roma children and parents on opportunities available to them in Glasgow, in terms of education and access to other services. We are grateful for their views and for taking the time to contribute to the project.
