Roma are Europe’s most marginalised ethnicity. In light of increasing numbers of Roma families arriving in Scotland, this event brings together service providers, policy makers, charity representatives involved in working with Roma families settled in Scotland to explore issues around their engagement with public services. The event will look at issues around poverty, racism and discrimination of Roma across Europe and draw implications for key services in terms of challenges in provision for this group and opportunities for service improvement. This session will familiarise participants with the complex needs of Roma migrants and will therefore interest practitioners from education, social work, health etc. The audiences will hear from research recently completed by academics at the University of Strathclyde, with a response from Glasgow City Council, and then engage in group activities with individuals from other services.
