Improving the lives of Gypsy/Travellers: 2019-2021

Joint action plan by the Scottish Government and the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA).

What happens after the plan is published?

The Ministerial Working Group – which worked with COSLA to oversee the development
of this plan – will continue for the lifetime of this plan.

The Ministerial Working Group and COSLA will meet every six months to review and
monitor progress and to discuss emerging opportunities, as well as find any solutions
to barriers or challenges to delivery. This will involve feedback from, and discussion
with, Gypsy/Traveller communities.

Delivery plans We will develop delivery plans. These will clearly identify which actions COSLA is leading on, which actions the Scottish Government are leading on, and which are shared work with other partners. They will be working documents, published online at regular intervals to demonstrate the variety of activities partners are taking under the five key areas of the plan. We will continue to work with Gypsy/Traveller communities so that they are actively involved in every stage of the work, and will ensure that their views and experiences form part of the review process.
