COVID-19 Framework on supporting Gypsy/Travellers

 

COVID-19 has placed additional pressures on public services and highlighted specific issues for the Gypsy/Traveller community to stay safe during the pandemic. COSLA and Scottish Government have developed a joint national policy COVID-19 Framework to support Local Authorities, Health Services, the Police and other partners in their service delivery to the Gypsy/Traveller community. 

 

If you would like to discuss the framework please contact:
