Equal Voice: Pontypool

Equal Voice is a project that is based at  West Monmouthshire School in Pontypool and supports Gypsy and Traveller pupils not just in education but to have their say, learn about their rights and get involved in all sorts of activities as well. They run a weekly forum with elected members chosen by the pupils and they have many achievements to their name.  Have a look at the gallery below to see some of the things they have been up to and hover over the photos to see what the young people said.

Keep in touch with their work through the Torfaen Traveller Education Service twitter account here 

Equal Voice are also on the planning group for Travelling Ahead’s  South East Regional Forums and they are working on the PEER project during 2016..
