Project Aim 

The Integrated Communities project seeks to support migrant Roma communities in Margate, Dover and Folkestone. There is a strong focus on Early years and breaking down barriers that prevent families from the Roma community accessing Early year provisions available to them.  Three Development Officers will be employed to help their communities identify solutions to their problems and consequently to assist in establishing positive activities, increasing access to services and building links with wider communities. Through our Roma in the Lead project we have already supported the Roma community to develop strong connections with statutory Services, voluntary services and the wider community. The Integrated Communities Early Years project is looking to build on these connections and focus on early years development and school readiness. This exciting project has been funded by the Ministry of Communities, Housing and Local Government. Further information

About the role

The EU has criticised many member states, including the UK on the lack of Roma integration strategies and policies. To address the inequalities faced by the Roma community in areas of discrimination such as housing, healthcare, education and employment, Red Zebra has developed the Integrated Communities project to try and redress this balance.  Statistics show that there are barriers preventing Roma families from engaging or accessing Early Year provision and other services. By working with the Roma community specifically, we are adopting a broader approach  with a focus on supporting people coming from outside the UK, wishing to settle lawfully in this country, to be able to play a full part in our society and to make the most of the economic and social opportunities available to them. This exciting project is being funded by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government. Further information

Reporting to: Integrated Communities Manager  

About the role

The EU has criticised many member states including the UK on the lack of Roma integration strategy and policies to address the inequalities Roma face in the areas of discrimination, housing, healthcare, education and employment. Red Zebra has developed the Integrated Communities project to try and redress this balance by introducing Roma families to Early Years provision and other services that statistics show they do not engage with. By working with Roma specifically we are more broadly working with the aim of supporting people coming from outside the UK, wishing to settle lawfully in this country, to be able to play a full part in our society and to make the most of the economic and social opportunities available to them. This exciting project is being funded by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.

‘Roma in the Lead’ Development Officers – Two positions available

Employer: Red Zebra Community Solutions
Salary: £10,810 for 20 hours (equivalent to £20,000 Full time).   

Contract: 18 month fixed term contract

Location: Margate and Folkestone (please let us know which post you would like to apply for)

Hours: Flexible to be discussed at the interview

Reporting to: ‘Roma in the lead’ Co-ordinator  

Britain’s vote to leave the EU has caused concern and uncertainty amongst Roma migrants regarding their future in the UK particularly around their legal rights of residence and access to healthcare and other public services. Following the referendum there has been a sharp increase in the number of hate crimes which has created further barriers to integration.   We have been awarded Lottery Community Fund funding for 3 years to fund a ‘Roma in the Lead’ project, which aims to address issues Roma migrants face around integration and difficulties in accessing services.  We are currently half way through the project and are looking to recruit two new development workers for the next 18 months.

Project Aim

A large number of projects consult groups but we believe the best way forward is to have people in charge and control of their own futures. During a consultation with local Roma a dedicated Roma Development Team was welcomed as a way of enabling Roma communities to “solve problems and help the community have a better understanding of Roma people”.

The Roma Development team will work across east Kent, helping existing projects to continue and new events to be set up, creating opportunities for Roma people to have positions of authority or influence in their communities and helping local Roma people to raise their achievements and hopes.
