Facing the Future
A report looking at the Public Sector relationship with Gypsy and Traveller Communities across the East Midlands, Peterborough and Cambridge.
This study moves the debate forward, by focusing closely on the effectiveness of public policy towards Gypsy and Traveller communities, whose disadvantage has been so well and so comprehensively documented.
The aim behind the research was to capture a moment in time (or what some may refer to as a ‘snapshot’) of the quality of the relationships between the public authorities and the Romany Gypsy and Irish Traveller communities in the region. Perhaps more importantly, it sought to examine whether the policies and practices of the public authorities were recognisably and visibly removing the barriers of prejudice, disadvantage and discrimination against the Romany Gypsy and Irish Traveller communities.
