The Traveller Movement

The Traveller Movement’s Education Information & Support website is designed to assist Gypsy, Roma and Traveller parents and young people in accessing all areas of education in a way that is accessible, approachable and specific to GRT communities. We aim to help make families aware of their legal rights and entitlements, to help build individual and community capacity, confidence and digital inclusion.

We want Gypsy, Roma and Traveller parents to feel empowered to challenge the injustices they may face within educational settings and have a say on how educational providers operate. Education dictates our future opportunities and it is right that Gypsy, Roma and Traveller families receive the same decent level of education as everyone else, to secure their future opportunities and benefit the wider aspects of life as a whole.

We are combining this website with our already existing Education Advice and Advocacy Support Unit. Our desire for GRT families is to provide a space place to seek information and help, with a back-up support service for those who need extra help, or have a situation so complex the information and support offered on this website will not be helpful. We hope this approach will enable us to maximise our outreach and provide a much needed guide for communities who are well known to be denied a decent education through the exceptional level of bullying faced.
