A ‘Life Safety’ approach and Traveller engagement essential to sustain fire safety for Travellers
The high level of fire safety issues highlighted in today’s Traveller Fire Safety report is lamentable but not unexpected and is a sign of the overcrowded and sub-standard living conditions that Travellers continue to experience in Ireland today.
Minister – End Pointless Evictions that Solve Nothing
Pavee Point Traveller and Roma Centre is calling on Minister for Housing, Simon Coveney TD to use his Ministerial powers and introduce a ban on Traveller evictions until Travellers on local authorities housing lists are provided for.
From its very early days Pavee Point has lobbied and campaigned for Irish Travellers to be recognised as a minority ethnic group. We see this as a key element if Travellers are to attain their human rights and improved living conditions. We give you 4 reasons why.
