Description:
Since 2009, the Tallaght Roma Integration Project (TRIP), formerly the Roma Families Working Group, has been working to address the needs of the Roma community in the greater Tallaght area. TRIP was formed in response to a number of issues which were highlighted during a community consultation process with the Roma population living in the locality of Tallaght, a large suburb positioned on the outskirts of Dublin, the capital city of Ireland. Problems with access to healthcare emerged from that consultation process as a major concern for the Roma community. Arising from that process of consultation, a key focus of TRIP, since its foundation, has been to work to improve healthcare access for the Roma community. The aim of this report is to record the establishment of TRIP and its subsequent focus on improving access to healthcare for the Roma community in Tallaght.
