roma in the lead
Working with the Roma community to help improve access to services and groups
Roma in the lead is a three year project funded by the National Lottery Community Fund – we are two thirds of the way through the project which is continuing to September 2020.
We have employed development officers and staff from the Roma community to engage with local residents and put on a number of activities, we also connect communities with statutory services and have started a programme of workshops to support people in applying for their Settled Status ahead of Brexit. The project takes a holistic approach to community – we believe in upskilling the community as far as possible so that emerging community leaders and change makers can continue the work after the project is finished.
