A plea from the Traveller Equality Project


I  run the Traveller Equality Project which works in prison with Gypsies and Irish Travellers. I am getting a number of requests from European Roma for help resources etc. I have just received a letter from two Slovakian Roma.
 In the past I have asked some people working with Roma to provide resources, advice etc to no avail. Anyway, the point is if you have access to resources for Roma which are free please get in touch with me.

Churches Network for Gypsies, Travellers and Roma

The objects of the Churches Network for Gypsies, Travellers and Roma are:

  •   to work for harmony, understanding and co-operation between communities, churches and Gypsy, Traveller and Roma people

  •                          to work with Gypsies, Travellers, Showmen and Roma to promote a better and wider understanding of the history, culture and lifestyles of Gypsies, Showmen, Travellers and Roma

  • to seek to understand, bear witness to and challenge the prejudices and structural injustices which marginalise, exclude and endanger Gypsies, Travellers and Roma people
  •     to ensure a voice for Gypsies, Travellers and Roma in our churches, and to encourage and support Christian vocations in those minority communities
  •      to encourage churches to embrace the cultural identity of Gypsies, Travellers and Roma and the gifts they bring to the Christian church, as they prefer to express them in their worship

    If you share any of these aims, you are very welcome to join our facebook group, and to contribute to harmony and understanding.
