Strategy to tackle gypsy and traveller inequalities

A national strategy to tackle inequality of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities has been launched.

In order to address the issues highlighted by the Race Disparity Audit, the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has provided £200,000 of funding between six projects aiming to improve outcomes for Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities in the areas of educational attainment, health and social integration.

The department has also funded 22 projects which support Roma communities across England through the Controlling Migration Fund and there are two two projects to improve the reporting of hate crime by Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities.

Communities Minister Lord Bourne said: "Health, education and housing inequalities are considerable, and we know that that there are disproportionate levels of violence experienced by some women and girls within Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities.

"To bridge these divides and tackle these vital issues, we are launching an ambitious programme of work, to be undertaken across government, which will aim to tackle the serious disparities faced by Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities."
