Moving Forward: The Provision of Accommodation for Travellers and Gypsies
Moving Forward: The Provision of Accommodation for Travellers and Gypsies. This report examines the issues surrounding the provision of accommodation for Travellers and Gypsies in England and Wales. It includes an overview of the implications of the existing approach for the Travelling community, for local authorities and for those parts of the settled community affected by unauthorised encampments. The provision of appropriate and adequate sites for Travellers and their families lies at the heart of resolving inequalities of access to health, education and employment, local tensions between communities with different interests and needs and is key to tackling racism and discrimination.
