Sligo Traveller Support Group was first established in 2001 as a partnership between Traveller and settled people in the community. Our main aim is to establish a voice for the local Traveller community in Sligo – to address issues of importance such as accommodation, health, education and employment, Youth, Childcare for Travellers and to counteract the causes and effects of prejudice, discrimination and racism against Travellers.
