At an awareness-raising afternoon with Gypsy/Travellers, we heard that Gypsy/Travellers with caring responsibilities face many difficulties. We’re now holding evidence sessions on Gypsy/Travellers and care and have sponsored an event in the Parliament, hosted by MECOPP, about working with Gypsy/Traveller carers.
A report has now been published by the Committee:
3rd Report, 2012 (Session 4): Gypsy/Travellers and Care
We launched a separate inquiry into where Gypsy/Travellers live and carried out visits to Gyspy/Traveller sites in late 2012. We took oral evidence between December 2012 and February 2013 and held an external meeting at Clinterty Travelling Person's site in February 2013.
