Multimedia Toolkit for Roma Parents

This project’s main aim was to address a significant need for knowledge and understanding about the legal framework of child protection amongst Roma parents living in the UK.

The project was funded by the Tudor Trust.


What we did?

We developed a multimedia toolkit explaining the legal framework of child protection. The toolkit consists of an information guide and a short film (to be published in January 2019) illustrating key elements of the legal framework and the skills needed to fully comply with the child protection requirements. The film is narrated by Roma community members in Romanes.

We also delivered three community training sessions for Roma community members: in London, Rotherham and Derby.

Who did we work with?

We worked with three Roma organisations: Roma Support Group (London), Clifton Learning Partnership (Rotherham) and Roma Community Care (Derby). The Roma community was involved in all stages of the project delivery: from consultation about the community’s concerns and understanding regarding child protection through involvement in the design of information resource and short film to delivery of training.

“It has been a pleasure to work with Law for Life on this project. It has produced an invaluable resource for Roma families but also the process has been of worth. The planning and delivery of the project has been professional and thorough throughout and it has empowered our staff. All round it has been a fantastic piece of work that we are proud to have been a small part of.”

“This guide is invaluable for those working with Roma families. Equally, it will be of use to anyone who wants to understand more about safeguarding procedures. It is beautifully written, and presented and is easy to understand. It carefully walks you through all the jargon and procedures. The addition of case studies really help to highlight issues.”

– Helen Littlewood, Director, Clifton Learning Partnership


We also hope that this resource will be used by Children’s Services to help them make the legal frameworks more accessible and engage more effectively with Roma families.
