They will present findings from the Nuffield Foundation project, ‘Child Poverty and Multidimensional Disadvantage: Tackling “Data Exclusion” and Extending the Evidence Base on “Missing” and “Invisible” Children’.

The project has built up new evidence covering the following four groups of children affected by ‘data exclusion’:

Young carers
Children from the Gypsy, Traveller or Roma ethnic minority group
Children with a migrant family background
Children at risk of abuse and neglect.

The Women and Equalities Committee has launched an inquiry to look at the inequalities experienced by Gypsies, Roma and Travellers, the effectiveness of policymaking, and what action the Government can take to tackle the inequalities. The committee is particularly keen to hear directly from Gypsies, Roma and Travellers about their own experiences. The deadline for written submissions is Friday 27 January 2017.
