Code: BH/18/1600 Working with Traveller Families

This course is for anyone who may be coming into contact with, or needs to find our more about the Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities. The training includes representatives from the Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities.

The Traveller population in Brighton & Hove to date has been  mainly mobile and  existed  on the edge of residential communities.   It has often  been  difficult for professionals to engage with these close knit but hard to reach families and groups, and frequently difficult for a mobile population to access services. Brighton & Hove after years of negotiation with all stakeholders are  providing both a residential Traveller site and a refurbished short stay site, providing a total of 33 pitches.   This will provide better opportunities to ensure improved access to services and promote  good relations  with the local community

This course aims to share the good practice, developed over two decades. of successful ways of working and engaging with Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities.
