Hi everyone, I’m at a library so on mute/no camera but nice to meet you all. I’m doing a project, funded by Paul Hamlyn, looking at the intersection between Traveller sites are located and health - my initial investigation is here: https://bylinetimes.com/2021/05/24/systemic-racism-within-a-rigged-system-new-investigation-reveals-how-travellers-sites-are-routinely-placed-in-risky-locations/ - do feel free to contact me if you want to know more on Katharinequarmby0@gmail.com. It’s done in partnership with many GRT organisations
Great thanks Katharine
That’s a pretty shocking statistic.
Agree - very stark data
Fantastic presentation Michelle, thank you for presenting these insights… am going to hand over to Angela now.
Hear hear Michelle!!
There is an excellent article by George Monbiot in the Guardian today, titled "The UK is heading towards authoritarianism: just look a this attack on a minority", which focuses on the effect of the systemic and legal barriers facing travelling, nomadic and homeless peoples, focusing on the new policing bill and historic legal inequalities facing these communities. Friends, Families and Travellers is cited in the article.
Hi all - great talks about serious gaps in the way health systems meet the needs of people. I wanted to ask the group, does anyone know of a way of linking a public health/population health framework to individual assessments of need. We're looking for a way of linking these two levels up to inform service resource allocation - without falling back on medical mental health diagnoses - based on the needs of people who rely on any services.
›Great presentation Michelle! I have to head off now but thank you all for such a great webinar
Please type any questions in the chat for any of our presenters today
Hi, thanks for this very useful information. Can I ask if you have any advice to support families from travelling communities (as needed) to 'trust' social care so they can access support, and that they will not take children away (or are unlikely to)? Thank you!
Ines - are there examples of good practice/case studies for how trusts have supported wider health and wellbeing of inclusion health groups?
I'm sorry I will have to go but very informative session
Hi, I work in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services in Bedfordshire and Luton and am interested in how we can reach the traveller community to ensure they are aware that our services exist and are available to them if they need to use them. Perhaps Michelle and/or Helen may be interested in attending our stakeholder meetings or whole staff meetings?
I am the Operational lead for the CAMH schools team in CBC so would love to connect with you Helen and discuss if we can collaborate in the future?
Maybe the cultural training is something we organise for ELFT if we have different teams wanting to access this ?
Yes please - I was going to ask how best to go about this.
I would definitely be interested in cultural awareness training.
I think specific training for teams in Bedfordshire would be really great; I know my team would really find this useful
