The Central Roma Council in Poland, the Roma Advisory and Information Center, has been operating since 1990. It is an independent advocacy organization with the status of a non-governmental organization of national minorities. There are experts in the Association who belong to the Roma community in Poland and Europe.

The organization works for integration, intercultural dialogue, shaping attitudes of openness towards national, ethnic and religious minorities. We place particular emphasis on counteracting social exclusion, the phenomenon of Romophobia and discrimination.

As part of its activities, the Association cooperates with domestic and foreign institutions. We are consultants for state administration, local governments, international and local organizatons.

The implemented activities are multifaceted and provide support for Refugees from Ukraine, including Refugees of Roma origin who belong to an ethnic group. The Central Roma Council in Poland, acting in cooperation with various UN agencies, coordinates the support provided to the Roma – citizens of Ukraine fleeing the war.

Our Activities and Support:

  • Vulnerable Roma fleeing Ukraine will be given access to interpretation and cultural mediation services;
  • Vulnerable Roma fleeing the war will be provided with transport and access to medical and psychological assistance as needed;
  • Officials and volunteers are able to provide culturally sensitive assistance to Roma refugees and incorporate anti-discrimination practices and policies into their work.

In addition, cultural mediation services are provided to help Roma settle in Poland and find themselves in a new environment.

Educational and cultural activities for adults and children are organized, thus giving children the opportunity to broaden their knowledge and make new friends, and adults to get away from everyday life in reception centers and understand Polish culture, get to know the cities where they live and the Polish lifestyle.

Our organization and cultural assistants organize extracurricular activities for children, both Roma and Ukrainian, in particular those staying in reception centres, including sports, art and language classes. Considering the particularly vulnerable nature of the Roma, often struggling with difficult living conditions, limited access to social and medical services, as well as social stigma combined with displacement and an uncertain future, this project will provide expert support, including psychosocial and medical assistance. In addition, refugees receive support in the form of individual career counseling sessions serving as a guide to the Polish labor market.

There is a hotline at +48 511 554 822, where you can get information about help, psychological support, formal matters, obtaining UKR status, etc. There are also cultural assistants in Romani, Polish and Ukrainian.

Our activities cover the following voivodships: Małopolskie, Śląskie, Mazowieckie, Podlaskie, Wielkopolskie, Łódzkie, and Warmińsko-Mazurskie. The range is nationwide.
