Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities terminology
Timeline of Romany Gypsy History in UK
''A number of different groups are covered by the generic term Gypsy, Roma and Traveller: English and Welsh Gypsies, Irish and Scottish Travellers, showmen (fairground people) and circus people, bargees (occupational boat dwellers) and New Travellers.''
''A large percentage of the total population of the communities live in houses; they do not lose their ethnicity when they move into houses. Others live on local authority or privately owned caravan sites or are resident on their own plot of land. Around one-fifth of the non-housed populations have no secure place to stay, and move between unauthorised encampments.''
