Drawing on secondary sources and interviews with service providers, community representatives and local residents, the findings from the research study reported in this chapter provide a snapshot of a community, which is thought to have grown ten-fold in the last decade. The study provides insights into the context for and dynamics underpinning educational and social disadvantage within a Portuguese Community in South London and identifies the key areas for further policy research and development.
