Bridges

Bridges – Connecting Gypsy / Travellers with the wider community

The Bridges project aims to promote a sense of pride for Gypsy/Traveller heritage and culture, by encouraging community cohesion and connecting Gypsy and Travellers with the wider community of Wales.

Bridges provide support via mentoring and referral services through Hate Crime, Education, Health, Housing and Welsh policy.  A ‘Multi Agency Gypsy/Traveller’ Steering Group meet quarterly along with encouraging Gypsy/Traveller youth and adult forums to promote pride, voice and engagement.

The project is part of the MAGNET portfolio of Community Voice projects in Merthyr Tydfil, which is funded by the Big Lottery.
