Welcome to our Guest Blog which encourages dialogue and debate on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ESCR) in the UK. We share legal analysis of recent ESCR developments, including case law, current litigation, legislation, policy-making, campaigning, lived experience and activism.
Zero Discrimination Day
The Roma Support Group (RSG) is a Roma-led registered charity working with Eastern European Roma refugees and migrants since 1998. The RSG’s mission is to improve the quality of life for Roma refugees and migrants by helping them to overcome prejudice, isolation and vulnerability. RSG also aims to make the public aware of Roma culture, heritage and the current situation of Roma people in the UK. @RomaSupport
