Question 11 is designed to help ensure that there are equal outcomes for people from all ethnic or cultural backgrounds, including Irish Travellers, in terms of health, education, accommodation and employment.

Often by treating everyone the same, minority groups, including Travellers, don’t experience the same benefits as people from the larger groups. ¬†This in turn creates inequalities in society.

It is only by taking difference into account that equality of opportunity and outcome can be achieved.
