Case Study - St Edmund’s Nursery School and Children’s Centre | Award Nomination 2016

Juraj Tancos, Family Support Worker
St Edmund’s Nursery School and Children’s Centre
 
Practice
Juraj works with families from Eastern Europe, mainly with families from Roma ethnicity. All those families had a very bad experience in various aspects including early education, school, employment and communities. Juraj works with staff and other professionals to provide a variety of support to families. This may include helping them with benefits, housing, adult courses and parenting. However, the main focus for him is to help parents and families to understand the benefit of early education. He has manged to build a bridge between different communities and he developed a presentation to make the professionals aware of the difficulties families faced in their past.
 
Impact
The staff, students and the local community have developed close relationships based on mutual trust supported by Juraj’s involvement. Having experienced discrimination himself, Juraj is a real role model for other Roma families. It also shows other professionals that, if given the right opportunities Roma people can achieve like everybody else. Juraj is also actively involved in delivering training for other professionals in order to improve their work with Eastern European families. As a result, St. Edmund’s has been identified as a centre of excellent practice.
