They have experience of working with both new and established Roma communities from across Central and Eastern Europe and professionals who support Roma communities. Many practitioners are dealing with an increasing number of difficult cases which involve East European Roma. The workshop will enable professionals to explore issues related to experiences from countries of origin, cultural customs and taboos, understanding of UK norms and expectations and impact on communication and engagement with services and professionals.


Trainers deliver interactive presentations and facilitate discussions.The session also provides the opportunity to meet other practitioners working with Roma and share examples of good practice.
