Pavee Point is a Dublin-based, national, non-governmental organisation established in 1985 and committed to the realisation of human rights for Irish Travellers and Roma living in Ireland.
The organisation is a partnership of Travellers, Roma and members of the majority population working together to address the needs of Travellers and Roma as minority ethnic groups who experience exclusion, marginalisation and discrimination.
Pavee Point has extensive experience in developing innovative and culturally appropriate responses to the needs of Travellers and Roma from a starting point based on a community development approach and an intercultural model. The organisation seeks to combine local action with national resourcing and direct work with research and policy formulation. See Our Work.
We have worked directly with Travellers for over thirty years and with Roma since 1998. This experience, and our continuous analysis of Travellers and Roma circumstances and needs, means that the organisation is well position to respond to the ongoing and emerging needs of Travellers and Roma.
Pavee Point also has considerable experience in working with partnership with a variety of sectors in developing responses and analysis of issues affecting Travellers and Roma and their needs. These include statutory, community and voluntary sectors as well as partnership-based structures.
Travellers and Roma are recognised and respected as minority ethnic groups who are proud and confident in exercising their full rights.
Pavee Point’s mission is to contribute to improvement in the quality of life, living circumstances, status and participation of Travellers and Roma through working innovatively for social justice, greater solidarity, development, equality and human rights.
