In April 2012, the Department for Communities and Local Government published a ‘Progress report by the ministerial working group on tackling inequalities experienced by Gypsies and Travellers’.
Gypsies and Travellers experience, and are being held back by, some of the worst outcomes of any group across a wide range of social indicators. In November 2010, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government set up a ministerial working group to tackle these issues, bringing together ministers from seven Government departments.
This progress report includes 28 commitments from across Government that will help mainstream services work more effectively with the Gypsy and Traveller communities.
