Roma Slovak Children: Sheffield Council Wide Response - Sheffield Youth Justice Service (2019)


Sheffield council wide response to working effectively with children and families from the Roma Slovak community



Since 2006, Sheffield City Council saw an increase in migration from the Roma Slovak community, which over the last few years has increased. It was recognised that services in Sheffield City Council where underequipped to work effectively with those children and families. This prompted key partners to come together and consider most appropriate services for those children and families.


Please find attached the following documents, that highlight a positive way of working with the Roma community in Sheffield and may aid thinking in adapting ways of working with other marginalised communities.
