Equality is a charity that works to uphold and secure the rights of ethnic minority groups in Britain and Europe. We primarily help Roma who migrated to the UK from the new EU Member States. Roma are regarded as the most vulnerable and deprived ethnic group within Europe. Equality empowers them to resolve employment, housing, education, healthcare and social welfare issues. We help by building dialogue, understanding and co-operation between Roma communities (or other ethnic minority groups), local authorities and service providers.
