ISBN: 9781785449031

This report brings together analysis previously published to provide a comprehensive and wide ranging evidence base on Scotland’s Gypsy/Travellers. It presents analysis of key areas such as health, education, housing, transport and economic indicators to reveal important information on the lives and life chances of Gypsy/Travellers.

Executive Summary

The Scottish Government is committed to ensuring equality of opportunity for all of Scotland’s Gypsy/Travellers, a particularly marginalised group. To this end, a sound analytical evidence base is important and can be used to identify policy priorities, target services and tackle discrimination. This information can be used to inform policy making aimed at improving the lives of Gypsy/Travellers in Scotland, and future data can be compared to this baseline to show change and progress over time
