Recent projects have focused on raising educational aspiration and outcome for Roma. Funded by the MHCLG the REAP project is a joint project between ourselves at LJMU and a community partner, Granby Toxteth Development Trust. REAP (Roma Educational Aspiration Project) is working alongside the LREN (Liverpool Roma Employability Network) project to address long held discrimination in the labour market that prevents Roma from reaching their potential. Evaluation of the impact of REAP led to further funding from MHCLG.
