New national strategy to tackle Gypsy, Roma and Traveller inequalities

Communities Minister Lord Bourne launched a national strategy to tackle entrenched inequality and improve the lives of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities on Thursday 6thJune.

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) is to lead the national strategy, working with several government departments and the Cabinet Office Race Disparity Unit to improve outcomes in areas including health, education and employment.

The announcement comes as communities across the country celebrate the start of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller History Month and will build on the government’s ongoing work to support Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities.
