This guide is for suicide bereavement services and members of the Support after Suicide Partnership (SASP). It is a first step in improving how we appropriately support people from the Gypsy, Roma, and Traveller communities who have been bereaved by suicide. We are incredibly grateful to those community organisations who have allowed their research, knowledge, and guidance to be shared in this document. We would strongly advise that you use the links at the end of this guide to explore the important issues raised further. Once you have read the information in this guide, please build links with the organisations we have listed, or with other local Gypsy, Roma, and Traveller community organisations. Get to know your local communities and how best to work with them to provide culturally sensitive and appropriate support in your area. We hope that you find this a useful introduction to Gypsy, Roma, and Traveller communities in the UK.
