The overall aim of The Roma Project (based in Coventry, UK) is to tackle the exploitation of the Roma community in Coventry and to advance their social inclusion within the city.
The Roma Project in Coventry was founded in 2010 in response to a need within the community. It has always been a project that is run by the community and has evolved to try to meet the changing and growing needs that have been identified within the community.
The current Board that steers the project includes members of the Roma Community. They have recognised the need to build capability and capacity within the organisation in order to move forward and make more impact on the issues facing the community. The project has a goal of forming a youth committee board. Youth engagement and supporting Roma Women and children is a priority of the Roma Project.
We have won several awards for our work with the Roma Community.
