Abstract

The term ‘Traveller Communities’ refers to a complex population group encompassing Romani Gypsies, Irish Travellers, Welsh Travellers, Scottish Travellers, Roma, New Travellers, Travelling Showpeople, Circus People and Boat Dwellers. A lack of reliable demographic data combined with nomadic lifestyles leads to potential invisibility in health service planning and results in unmet needs.Outreach has been utilised as a key strategy to engage Traveller Communities in health improvement interventions.
