2017/8 Conferences, Training & Progress

In June 2017, GRTPA held a conference in Cheshire, to discuss the national issue of inequalities of service to Domestic Abuse victims from GRT communities in the UK paving the way to encourage a fair and accessible service to all.

In September 2018, Director Peter Kotlar took part in a training course in Strasbourg, France on combating antigypsyism and human rights. The training course was delivered by the Council of Europe and Peter implemented the action plan initiated during the course into the work we do within the GRTPA on combating discrimination and racism we are faced with regularly.

In October 2018 a GRTPA representative spoke in Ukrainian Parliament about the importance of the inclusion of minority ethnic groups, such as GRT, in public services. The event entitled “Realising the Rights of Roma Women in Ukraine” brought about national change in policing concerning the protection of Roma Communities following a joint submission of recommendations. http://newsme.com.ua/en/society/4093239/
