SURREY GYPSY TRAVELLER COMMUNITIES FORUM (SGTCF)

The SGTCF management committee intend to continue the work of striving for a better future for Gypsy, Roma, Traveller families within Surrey, as a legacy to our dear departed founder member, Mrs. Ann Wilson MBE.

Having delivered classroom based cultural training earlier this year, COVID19 has impacted on how we now do this.

During the summer, a small team that includes two new community trainers, have been fast tracking an online version of the original package. Not surprisingly, this has created new challenges as we got to grips with the available technology. A positive side effect has been a thorough and comprehensive review of the course that has been brought up to date and adapted for delivery via Zoom or Microsoft Teams (for further details go to the services tab on the header bookmark).

Update: The first two online training packages were delivered to borough councillors and council staff from housing, planning, etc., in October 2020
