Roma Project is based in Coventry, UK.
The overall aim of The Roma Project is to tackle the exploitation of the Roma community in Coventry and to advance their social inclusion within the city. It will also use existing links to start to build a regional network that can become part of a national network of local voices.

BIG LOTTERY FUNDING SECURED-SEPT 2018
“Funded by People’s Health Trust using money raised through The Health Lottery in the West Midlands.”
This group will use its first-ever grant to provide an advice service and activities to support social inclusion and challenge negative stereotypes about the Roma community. The group will celebrate their cultural heritage and address issues such as hate crime, poverty, and ill health. Community meetings and advice sessions will be held for the Roma community to feedback on what problems they have experienced when accessing mainstream services, which will then be fed back to the service providers.
People’s Health Trust is an independent charity investing in local neighbourhoods to help create a society without health inequalities. It works closely with each of the regional and country lotteries raising money through The Health Lottery, and distributes grants.
IMPACT REPORT- FEB 2018
The Roma Project is about to complete a 3-year project funded by the Metropolitan Migration Foundation (February 2015 – January 2018). An independent evaluator has been appointed to conduct an evaluation of the activities conducted by The Roma Project, which for the past 3 years spanned: building capacity for the local Roma community and enabling them to strengthen voice and autonomy for social, civic and economic participation; further dialogue and communication among the Roma community and the multicultural population of Coventry on the one hand, and public authorities on the other; and strengthen its own institutional capacity and workflows for providing timely, efficient and reliable support to the Roma community. The report will be published in February 2018 and made available on the Roma Project website.
