There are worries some employers and landlords are taking advantage
There are concerns that the Eastern European community is being exploited in Spalding.
Around 200 Poles, Latvians and Lithuanians were surveyed for a new report from the St Mary and St Nicholas Church - almost half said the language barrier had made living in the town much harder.
There are worries that employers and landlords are taking advantage - in 2 cases women said they had been asked for sexual favours in return for accomodation.
Other people were told that they would lose their jobs if they took any time off.
