Alexandra is our new Roma Community Development Worker. Alexandra is working closely with Liverpool City Council and Riverside Housing to build links with the Roma communities living in the L7 and L8 areas.
Alexandra's role is to work directly with the Eastern European Roma community to encourage integration into the society they currently live in. Alexandra will also develop a group of Roma Community representatives willing to work with Liverpool City Council and partners. To give them a voice through which they can articulate their needs and concerns within the society in which they coexist with other racial and national groups
We are all looking forward to Alexandra giving us a presentation on the cultural differences of the Romanian communities in September and we will update our blog with some of her comments and findings.
