The Parliamentary Women’s and Equalities Committee inquiry Tackling inequalities faced by Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities, published in April, concluded that the government had “comprehensively failed” Gypsy Roma and Traveller communities in the UK.

ACERT absolutely agrees, but we are concerned that this report doesn’t gather dust like many before it. Therefore, we will be hosting a free conference to provide an opportunity for community members, professionals and activists to discuss the outcomes of the report and identify practical ways in which we can work together to turn the tide of inequality.

After a free lunch the afternoon will consist of interactive workshops with a focus on practice in action  examining good examples of youth engagement with Gypsy, Roma and Travellers in a wide range of settings.
