Gypsy and Traveller Working Group and Action Plan

Evidence suggests that Gypsies and Travellers are the most marginalised and disadvantaged of all minority groups nationally.

Gypsies and Travellers suffer the greatest inequalities across a range of indicators, including access to:

  • suitable accommodation
  • healthcare
  • education
  • employment
  • financial services
  • policing, justice and probation

The York Gypsy and Traveller Working Group seeks to address the inequalities that the Gypsy and Traveller community face.

Our vision is work towards ensuring that Gypsies and Travellers experience an inclusive, fair and understanding community in York.

Sections will be added to the plan over time and we'll publish all sections of the Action Plan here as they become available:
