Roma Community

During these unprecedented times, it is important to provide support to the most vulnerable Roma/Gypsy community members to ensure they have their basic needs met. Roma/Gypsy community is one of the most persecuted communities in Europe. Most of these community members are uneducated and face severe social stigma. Here in the U.K, they are often denied access to healthcare as they physically do not look European. Therefore we have now appointed a bilingual Roma Advocacy Worker to provide phone advocacy support and signposting services.

Roma Women’s Project 

Europia is facilitating a project with a group of Roma women in Greater Manchester, supporting them to come together and grow herbs, share recipes and make new friends. This project is in partnership with Greater Manchester Systems Changers and funded by Lankelly Chase Foundation. Although this project is now full, you can sign up to our newsletter to keep updated with any future projects like this.

Research project – A Community on the Edge: Rethinking support to EU Roma Communities

Europia has produced an article about the experience of EU Roma in Levenshulme, Gorton and Longsight, which has been published by MACC as a part of their No Going Back publication.
