Supporting early years practitioners working with Gypsy, Roma and Traveller families with transferable ideas for other outreach early years workers.
This document is aimed at anyone working outreach with children from Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities. Its purpose is to share and reflect the work, knowledge and ideas of practitioners nationally. It draws on the experiences and understanding of practitioners currently working in rural and urban locations, within Traveller Education Support Service (TESS) teams and in Sure Start Children Centres in the UK. The information and ideas contained in this document may be transferable to practice with other families currently excluded from early years services.
