Romani Protejati are a support group for members of the Romanian community who identify as LGBT.
They are based in Vauxhall.
They offer a comprehensive support and counselling service both around sexual health and issues related to coming out.
The Romanian community on the borough are a relatively recent arrival. Attitudes towards the Romanian community in the UK are not always positive.
This may lead to a reluctance within members of the Romanian community to engage with the police. Newham LGB&T have been trying over the past few months to open up lines of communication with LGB&T Romanians.
Romani Protejati contacted the team after the Romanian Cultural Institute displayed Newham LGB&T contact details on their web page.
This proactive networking lead to Newham LGB&T visiting Romani Protejati at their offices in Vauxhall.
A Romani Protejati leaflet is attached.
The team have also had their LGBT flyers translated into Romanian.
Two different versions are attached.
