The Big Issue in the North was commissioned by Roma Matrix, to engage, recruit, train and support Roma women to enable them to act as health mediators within their own communities. The project aimed to increase their knowledge and awareness of local health services as well as improving understanding of the particular health needs of their community and how they could positively address those needs.
In light of the current situation, we are making changes to the way we deliver services at the moment. One-to-one appointments that would normally be delivered face-to-face will now take place over the phone or through video call. There is no need to call us to confirm – your regular point of contact will call you at the time your appointment was scheduled.
We are also no longer holding groups inside. We’re currently arranging alternatives where possible through considering walking or virtual groups. Please contact your group facilitator, or the centre where the group runs from, for more information.
If you’re worried, think you may have symptoms of Coronavirus or want further information, see the latest advice from Public Health England.
Finally, if you’re struggling through self-isolation, please don’t feel alone. There are local community groups being created all over the country, which you can find here. Alternatively, you can call our community centres in your local area, which you can find here.
