This Community Studies report explores the experiences of the UK Nepalese population. Beginning with an overview on the population, settlement patterns and grassroots based initiatives; the report describes some of the migration routes and experiences of Nepalese in the UK. The report then focuses on retired Gurkhas and their families, because of the recent change in settlement restrictions, and their experiences in accessing local services. As many families live and work mainly white areas, their settlement adds a unique perspective to multi-ethnic Britain.
