Gypsy traveller services

Argyll Community Housing Association (ACHA) owns and manages two Gypsy Travellers sites. ACHA is the only housing association in Scotland currently operating sites for Gypsy Travellers, the others being in local authority ownership. In Argyll and Bute travellers live on the twoGypsy Travellersites and also within our mainstream housing.

ACHA would like to work in partnership with Gypsy Travellers and local and national bodies to see continual improvement in the services provided for Gypsy Travellers in Argyll and Bute.

The aim of the strategy is to promote equality and better understand the many issues around the provision of services for the Gypsy Traveller community. Both the strategy and the leaflet are available in audio format, please ask at any of our local offices if you would like either a paper or audio copy.
