Travelling Ahead : A Welsh project working with young people from the Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities.

» Forums

Between 2010 and 2014 Travelling Ahead worked in over 15 local authorities in Wales to help local partners set up youth forums for young Gypsies, Roma and Travellers – click here for our legacy report on the work of these local groups and Travelling Ahead between 2009-2014

Some of these forums are STILL GOING STRONG thanks to the young people and the brilliant support of local services such as Traveller Education, Youth and Play Staff and voluntary organisations like The Unity Project in Pembrokeshire and Bridges in Merthyr amongst others.

Young people are doing some amazing work around Wales from holding Poppy Appeal Days to showing their films and making presentations to raise awareness of what’s important to Gypsy, Roma and Traveller young people  – click on the local forum links below to see what’s going on in your area
