Aim of the course

  • To support the development of cultural competence in professionals working with the Irish Traveller community in Hackney and to understand the difficulties Travellers may face in accessing mainstream services.


By the end of the training participants will have a better understanding of:

  • The origins of the community
  • Challenges facing the community (Discrimination and Prejudices)
  • Health outcomes within the community
  • Educational outcomes within the community
  • The family and social norms
  • Accommodation issues impacting on the community
  • Unauthorised encampments
  • Improving access to Services

It was good to have input from the traveller movement so they could give real life examples of their experiences and answer questions with that knowledge!
