Travelling Ahead 2010 – 2017
The Travelling Ahead project was hosted at Save the Children since 2010 – it was set up to support young Gypsies and Travellers to have a voice and make sure your rights get respected – we are also developing our links with young Roma from EU countries settled in Wales so that they can be involved in the project as well.
Over the last six years we have worked with the Traveller Education Services and Youth Services in 14 Welsh Local Authorities to set up Gypsy and Traveller youth forums, where young people met with key decision makers to discuss issues that affect them – we now run three Regional Forums across Wales that support young people’s activities – have a look here for one in your area of Wales
Our National Forum has been running for 10 now – have a look at our National Forums page for more information and see what happens at the only national event for young Gypsies. Roma and Travellers to meet together and work on issues that are important to them
