Creating a fairer Britain
The Equality and Human Rights Commission has produced this media guide as a resource for journalists writing about Gypsy Travellers in Scotland. As well as facts and figures about the key issues affecting Gypsy Travellers there is also advice about terminology and contact details for organisations who work with them.
Media coverage has a real impact on individual people’s lives. Fair and balanced reporting about issues concerning Gypsy Travellers can help to foster greater understanding and better relations between and within communities and encourage action to address the issues that impact on both Gypsy Travellers and the settled community.
