STAG – Who are we?
Southwark Travellers’ Action Group (STAG) is a community organisation for Gypsies and Travellers based in Southwark. STAG has existed in some form since the early 1990s, becoming a grant funded project in the early 2000s, and developing into an independent organisation in early 2016.
True equality for the Gypsy and Traveller communities both in terms of tackling discrimination and prejudice, and in Gypsies and Travellers being able to lead a traditional way of life if they choose to whilst having equal access to opportunities and services to maximise their wellbeing.
What we do
STAG supports the local Gypsy and Traveller community to overcome barriers to accessing services and aim through 1-1 and group support. STAG also works to overcome the inequalities and disadvantages faced by the communities by running projects targeted at addressing issues with employment, education, health and housing.
