The United Kingdom and Ireland are home to a vibrant Filipino community that is one of the largest in Europe. Around 200,000 Filipino live and work in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and Ireland. Several of our kababayans have come together to form Filipino community organizations representing the different regions and communities in the Philippines, as well as different advocacies and areas of interest. The Embassy also works closely with the different Filipino community organizations in promoting Philippine interests in the UK and Ireland.
