APPG for Gypsies, Travellers and Roma

The APPG for Gypsies, Travellers and Roma provides a forum for parliamentarians concerned about issues facing Gypsy, Traveller and Roma communities and seeks to address these issues and challenge inequalities.

The APPG has two co-chairs, Martin Docherty-Hughes MP for West Dunbartonshire and Baroness Janet Whitaker, as well as around 25 other interested and active members. The APPG has identified a number of issues they are looking to address in the upcoming months, including:

  • ensuring the impact on Gypsies and Travellers is highlighted in ongoing debates and the consultation on unauthorised encampments,
  • addressing the findings of the Race Disparity Audit, and
  • highlighting the implications of Brexit on Roma communities in Europe

As Secretariat, Friends Families and Travellers will support and ensure members of the APPG are briefed on these issues.
