Ryalla Duffy is a Romany Gypsy and has been all her life. She, her husband and their children struggled to settle in various locations in the South of England before settling in Lincolnshire. She’s now part of the Lincolnshire Gypsy Liaison Group, delivering services for Gypsies and Travellers in the area.
Although all of her seven children suffered discrimination in school for their background and had to be home-schooled as a result, she and her husband were determined to settle where they were and applied for planning permission to do so.
Here she talks about the key skill of integrating into the settled community in order to offset negative perceptions of Traveller communities.
