Gypsies and travellers are protected from discrimination by the Race Relations Act 1976 and the Human Rights Act 1998, together with all ethnic groups who have a particular culture, language or values.
Their way of life means that they travel the country staying for various periods of time in different locations, in order to earn a living.

Traveller girl Mary Nicholson, aged six, arrives on her family's Romany Caravan at the Appleby Horse Fair on June 7, 2012 in Appleby, England.
Appleby Horse Fair has existed under the protection of a charter granted by James II since 1685.The animals are washed and groomed before being ridden at high speed along the 'mad mile' for the viewing of potential buyers.While a well-known part of the cultural fabric of the Gypsy, Roma and Traveller lifestyle, not all Gypsies live in caravans, and most of the 300,000 Roma and Travellers in the UK are settled rather than travelling.The Society sponsors programs and conferences and publishes the twice-yearly Romani Studies (continuing Journal of the Gypsy Lore Society), a quarterly Newsletter and other occasional publications.The Society has also established the Victor Weybright Archives of Gypsy Studies, specializing in recent scholarly work on Gypsy, Traveler and related studies, for the benefit of researchers and students.If you are living on an encampment or would like to report an encampment and would like to speak with us call 0113 2475493.
