Romano Lav was established in 2013 and has worked as an independent SCIO since 2014 to challenge the racism, discrimination, and disadvantage experienced by migrant Roma communities in Glasgow.
The words ‘Romano Lav’ mean ‘Roma voice’, which reflects the key founding principle of our organisation and the continuing objective that underpins all of our work: to ensure that Romani people, especially youth, are involved as active agents in all decisions that affect their lives. Romano Lav exists not to speak for Roma, but to work with our local Roma communities to ensure that Romani voices are heard in all relevant local social, political, and cultural domains and that we are led by their concerns. We use community development as a tool to achieve the advancement of citizenship of Roma communities by involving them in decision-making processes, creating a sense of ownership, and increasing participation in community activities.
