The Galway Traveller Movement was set up as an Independant Traveller Organisation in 1994. It was established by Travellers and settled people in Galway with the ultimate aim to achieve equality and self-determination for the Traveller community in Galway city. Since its inception it has been a force in creating positive social change for Travellers with a strong emphasis on mobilising Travellers to work collectively to challenge discrimination in all its forms. The management and staff were clear about what GTM was aiming  to achieve and were committed to using a community development approach to achieve these aims.

The organisation is committed to the principles of community work, such as active participation, collective action, lobbying and campaigning to bring about positive social change for Travellers. There is also pro-active mobilisation to be part of a movement at a local, regional and national level to bring about this positive change.

GTM Vision Statement

‘To achieve full equality for Travellers and the participation of Travellers in social, economic and cultural life as well as the broader enhancement of social justice and human rights’.

The Galway Traveller Movement was set up as an independent Traveller organisation in 1994. It was established by Travellers and non Travellers in Galway with the ultimate aim to achieve equality and self determination for the Traveller community in Galway city and county. Applying community work and human rights based approaches GTM as part of its strategic plan 2014-2016 plans to dedicate its resources to enabling the Traveller Community to be part of a movement that challenges structural inequality.

The primary principals which underpin the work of the Galway Traveller Movement are as follows:

  • Travellers are a minority ethnic group and are entitled to live in a way that is culturally acceptable to them
  • Travellers should be consulted and involved in meaningful decision making in relation to all issues affecting their lives
  • The individual and institutional racism which Travellers are subjected to must be tackled at a local, national and international level
