This good practice guide was developed by MECOPP (Minority Ethnic Carers of People Project) and was commissioned by Public Health Scotland and the Scottish Government.

It is a point of reference for those working with Gypsy/Traveller communities.

It should be read alongside the report 'What do Gypsy/Travellers think of vaccine information resources and how can they be improved to reflect cultural realities?'
