The Gypsy Council was formerly known as the National Gypsy Education Council which was formed in 1970. After many years of supporting and working in the educational rights of Gypsy people, the organisation was becoming increasingly involved in other issues which directly affected the educational prospects and advancement of Gypsy children and their families.
The Association was established in 1980 in order to decrease the isolation of teachers of Travellers and to support and encourage their work. It has an important role in facilitating the sharing of ideas and developing good practice. The network of teachers has progressed significantly over the years not only in providing support at a professional level for each other but as importantly in providing a system of continuity of schooling for children as they travel.
The Association is committed to facilitating an active and supportive network for the benefit of its members.
The Contact List for all Traveller Education Services is listed on the Website.

This is the name of the education project which has been running for many years at Appleby Fair. Traveller Education Teachers, Teacher Assistants, Health Workers, Welfare Officers, Community Workers and Travellers have worked together to bring everyone helping towards the education of Gypsy and Traveller children closer together.
This online resource base for teachers has been developed by Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester LEAs with funding from the DfES. It aims to become a focal point for teachers and others supporting Black and Minority Ethnic pupils, by providing content, encouraging contribution and signposting to advice and guidance.
The Gypsy Council is involved in a wide spectrum of support and liaison work, supporting Gypsy families in planning applications and their fight for decent legal places to live. Read more about the organisation and maybe consider joining.
