The independent report, Roma Experiencing Rough Sleeping in Westminster and Beyond: Evaluating New Approaches, was written by Maria Dumitru and Dr Solvor Mjøberg Lauritzen of the MF Norwegian School of Theology, Religion and Society.
This report was commissioned by the Westminster Homelessness Partnership under the headline ”Evaluating new approaches to working with Roma people experiencing rough sleeping in Westminster and beyond.” The goal was to look for new working models in relation to Roma experiencing rough sleeping in London, build new knowledge on their migration patterns and routes into destitution, their experiences in Westminster, and the integration or creation of policies and recommendations that could serve as tools to improve current initiatives and services.
It sets out the findings from interviews with Roma people who have experienced rough sleeping in the borough and with the professionals working with them. It also makes some recommendations for action, which the WHP will be considering in the next few months.
Importantly, it also provides some of the context of the communities that people come from, including the poverty that has resulted from centuries of slavery, oppression and genocide.
This history is the background that has brought some of the poorest people in Europe on to the streets in some of the richest areas of Britain.
