  34. Origins of Romani Romani in Europe are descendants of groups who left India around 1000 years ago Arrived in Europe around 14th Century Romani - some links with Hindi, Urdu and Punjabi but the present form influenced by Byzantine Greece and the Ottoman empire Some speak Romani and national language Others speak national language and limited (or no) Romani

  35. Migration 1850 to 1920/30 – abolition of slavery of Roma in Romania and subsequent destitution – many Roma fled SE Europe in search of better lives 1945 onwards – post war Europe and iron curtain sealed borders – movement restricted 1980 – 1989 – erosion of former soviet block frees up Romani and enables movement Accession of A8 (2004) and A2 in 2007

Current Estimates Estimates vary between 2000 and 3000 children and adults (2007 figures) Based on GP registrations (1609) across 5 Practices, School/Nursery Roll numbers, DRS Social Survey, Police environmental Health estimates. No Data – No Progress – currently trying to establish Roma ethnicity category in Carefirst 6 and new GIRFEC report Romanet Baseline Study (2011); `No Data – No Progress’ (2010) www.soros.org/initiatives/roma

  45. Gypsy/Roma/Travellers GRT category is unhelpful/inaccurate Roma are, in general, `sedentary’ population – not travellers. Current patterns are more likely to be migratory settlement patterns Increasingly signs of settlement – reduced `churn’ rate at schools
