National Action Plan

Improving the lives of our Gypsy/Traveller communities is a significant human-rights commitment for Scottish Government and COSLA and is crucial to delivering a fairer Scotland.

The national action plan was published in 2019 to address these inequalities and sets out work on five themes to improve outcomes for the communities:

  • More and better accommodation
  • Improving access to public services
  • Better incomes in and out of work
  • Tackling racism and discrimination
  • Improving Gypsy/Traveller representation

The initial actions in the plan have been developed with the advice, support and challenge of advocates, activists and members of the Gypsy/Traveller communities with delivery of priorities being adapted in response to feedback received through community conversations, cross party and ministerial working groups.
