'Them and us': how Gypsy/Traveller cultural awareness informs social work

A one-hour session that will explore terminology, historical understanding and the relationship between social work and Gypsy/Traveller communities. It will introduce solution-focused approaches to positive engagement and reflect on lived experience of inclusive practice. It will also be a safe space for conversation, ensuring attendees have every opportunity to ask questions and challenge their pre-conceptions around Gypsy/Travellers. 

Speakers include Annie Bryant, a criminal justice social worker, based within Dumfries and Galloway, and Davie Donaldson, a Nawken – Scottish Traveller – advocate and social justice campaigner.
