We work with Travellers to build a just, inclusive and welcoming community in and through faith

Debt & Dying

Following on from their research on the costs of funerals, Debt & Dying, National Traveller MABS have begun a conversation within the Traveller Community.  The Archbishop demonstrated his support and shared his experiences on the first day of that conversation which we hope will develop further.  He even tweeted about it (see below).  So if you have Twitter or Facebook perhpas you could visit our Facebook page and show your support.
