This article provides evidence that, in the field of education, Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities suffer manifestly unequal outcomes. Drawing particularly on the authors’ first hand experience of working to advance educational equality for these communities in one area of London, the article explores some of the reasons why this is the case, highlighting the day-to-day experiences of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller families.
Document that offers a start point for the LocalGovernment Association (LGA) commissioned researchto inform the Hidden Talents programme. It reviewsavailable statistics, data and commentary to establish what can be reasonably deduced to inform policy and work in response to young people aged 16–24 years who are not in employment, education or training (NEET).
Paper that argues for the need to join up and personalise support for the most disengaged young people, and those at risk of longer term disengagement, to participate more effectively in work, learning and volunteering.

This report should give an important insight into how well the care system is doing for children and young people, and how it prepares them for their own future, through the eyes of those leaving care for independent adult life.
Report that examines the causes of youth unemployment , the youth labour market in UK and compared to other countries, and whether welfare to work programmes can reduce youth unemployment.
Summary report which reflects the views and experiences of young people from six pilot authorities (five operating the ‘pure familial’ model and one operating the ‘hybrid’ model).
