Keeping our children safe – a video & PDF guide for Roma parents (England)

KEEPING OUR CHILDREN SAFE – A VIDEO GUIDE FOR ROMA PARENTS

This short film looks at key elements of the legal framework of child protection in England, and the skills needed to fully meet the requirements. The film is narrated by Roma community members in Romanes. 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.
