'Social enterprise as part of an integrated approach to Roma inclusion', 

Hosted by the European Economic and Social Committee, Brussels

 The aim of the event is to highlight the role of social enterprise as part of an integrated approach to Roma inclusion. A bilateral project from The Salvation Army Norway/Romania will be presented; comprising of work training and jobs in the clothes recycling sector, together with provision of health and education programmes, drawn together by a community centre. The event should highlight the potential of social enterprise, as well as identify barriers or areas for development.  The event should also advance the EU level debate on both Roma inclusion and also social enterprise, and to encourage the overlap/links to be made on both issues, between the European Commission and also civil society actors. The purpose of the event is also to promote the work of The Salvation Army highlighting its role as a key actor in the inclusion of Roma with the launch of our mapping report which gives an overview of diverse work of The Salvation Army with Roma across Europe and our new Advisory Statement on Roma Inclusion.
