Under the 2014 - 20 European Structural and Investment Funds there are no programmes specifically aimed at increasing the Roma, Gypsy and Traveller involvement in the labour market, but the European Social Fund will be capturing the number of Roma, Gypsy and Traveller beneficiaries for the 2014 -20 Programme but the figures are likely to be released in 2017. The European Regional Development Fund does not capture these figures.

Roma, Gypsy and Traveller groups and local authorities can seek to access European Structural and Investment Funds through their Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).
