There is no official statistics regarding the quantity and social composition of ethnic Ukrainians in Great Britain. Leaders of Ukrainian community organizations believe that the Ukrainian community currently amounts to approximately 30 thousand persons. These are mainly representatives of the first and second generations of the post-Second World War immigration.
Over the past few years, the Ukrainian community of Great Britain got increased due to migrant workers.
It is impossible to identify the total number of the Ukrainian citizens staying in the United Kingdom due to the lack of relevant statistics and methodology of determining this quantity, as well as because of the fact that there is no registration when people leave the country.
Citizens of Ukraine, having received permit to work in Great Britain, enjoy the same rights for the protection of their interests as the citizens of Great Britain do.
Almost 70 locations densely populated with Ukrainians have been identified on the territory of the United Kingdom. The most numerous communities live in London, Manchester, Bradford and Nottingham.
