TURKISH COMMUNITY IN THE UK

The estimated number of Turkish nationals living in the UK (students, au pairs, illegal immigrants are included) is around 150,000. They mostly live in London (Islington, Hackney, Harringey, Stoke Newington, Turnpike Lane, Newington Green in the North as well as Peckham and Lewisham in the South), Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, and Leeds areas.
 
In 1991 census, over 26,000 people declared their place of birth as Turkey. Yet, this number does not reflect the correct number of the Turkish community residing in the UK, since those who were born in the UK were not included. Likewise, the illegal immigrants have not been registered in the census. Please note that approximately 130,000 nationals of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, whose mother tongue is Turkish, are living in the UK as well.
 
 
There is no exact figure as to the total number of Turkish nationals obtaining British nationality. However, it is possible to have an educated guess from the statistics of the Home Office:
 
706 in 1995,
931 in 1996 ,
1118 in 1997,
2154 in 1998,
2913 in 1999,
4875 in 2000,
4050 in 2001,
8045 in 2002,
4910 in 2003, and
4885 in 2004
(Turkish nationals were granted British citizenship.Source: Home Office Statistical Bulletin).
 
Further information about Turkish community living in the UK can be obtained from HM Home Office Research and Statistic Department (Room 1804, Lunar House, 40 Wellesley Road, Croydon, Surrey CR0 9YD, Tel:020 87602850). http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk Independent researches conducted about Turkish community living in the UK may be of some help to you as well.
