Travelling Ahead website launched, 15/11/10 [W]

A new website for young Gypsy Travellers has been launched.

The Travelling Ahead project at Save the Children exists to support young Gypsies and Travellers to have a voice. The website will give young people their own sections to discuss their issues and interests with young people across Wales as we ll as to find help and support should they need it. It contains useful legal information, history and culture, and where to turn to if they’re having difficulties.

The website also has a professionals section which aims to offer guidance on good practice to workers who are new to working with Gypsies and Travellers. The guidance will be based upon examples of good practice case studies from the Traveller Education Services, expert legal knowledge from solicitors and consultations and workshops that Save the Children have conducted with young people across Wales.
