SG 2.2: Contribute to increased participation of Travellers in employment and enterprise
There are no open grant rounds for this programme at the moment. SSGT is working with several national Traveller organisations to determine the best approach it might take to contributing to this strategic aim.
Our initial thoughts are to focus on the following outcomes:
Government and agencies accept a duty and responsibility to focus on the high level of unemployment among Travellers and implement appropriate employment and education programmes;
Alliances between Traveller groups and State bodies and other agencies are created and strengthened to improve design and delivery of relevant labour market and education programmes
Improved policies and programmes leading to improved Traveller employment outcomes.
