Description:
Overview Substance mis-use within the Traveller community has been under the spotlight for nearly two decades. The few studies undertaken on the subject have focused on the perceptions of service providers and non-drug using members of the Traveller community with only minimal data provided by drug mis-using Travellers (Fountain(a), 2006; Van Hout, 2010). Pavee Point’s Drugs Programme sought to redress this gap in evidence based information by focusing on the experiences of Travellers who engage with drug and alcohol support services. This study gives a voice to these Travellers, a minority within a minority, with an aim of improving services for all Travellers.
