Compared to the general population, GRT people have worse health outcomes including much lower life expectancy. At school, they are more likely to face bullying or exclusion, and less likely to attain qualifications. They encounter discrimination throughout their lives and, more often than not, their experiences of authority are negative ones.
That is why #OperationTravellerVote and the Traveller Movement are calling on all prospective parliamentary candidates for the 8th June 2017 General Election to outline how they will support Gypsies, Roma and Travellers if elected.
