Traveller and Gypsy children - T

Children of Traveller, Gypsy and Roma families often face discrimination by the media, bullying at school and rejection from their local communities. Due to widespread prejudices and little understanding of their culture and traditional way of life, few agencies try to reach them. We understand their needs and we lobby for their right to a good childhood.
