Travelling Community Supports

Empower employ a dedicated Traveller Engagement and Support worker whose role includes identifying and responding to the need of Travellers. This work includes addressing food poverty, digital poverty, and breaking down isolation. Many of the Travellers go on to participate in a broad range of training courses.

In Dublin 15 we collaborate with the St Vincent de Paul and Blanchardstown Traveller Development Group to provide a Traveller Foodbank. In North County Fingal, Empower staff created a Traveller Women’s Group and support Fingal Traveller Organisation.
