The Traveller Movement (TM), formally known as the Irish Traveller Movement in Britain, gained charitable status in 2003 and directed their services towards marginalised Irish Travellers in the UK. In 2008, TM widened their network and services to engage with Romani (Gypsy), Roma and Irish Traveller people.
