The Women’s Centre Cornwall (TWCC) has undertaken a scoping exercise to identify issues encountered by Gypsy, Roma, Traveller and Migrant Women (GRT & M), both nationally and in Cornwall. Having engaged for 2 years in a near-by site, Minorca Lane, we wanted to explore how we might ensure the voices of women are heard from there and elsewhere in the county.
We were fortunate, despite Covid-19 and its third lockdown, to reach out to 26 women from these communities. Their views, and our conversations, have helped to shape this report. Powerful women role models exist within Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities; it is important to hear their voices.
