Travellers' Times is currently on a new path towards independence. By July 2025, we aim to become a fully independent media platform, owned and led by the very Gypsy, Roma, and Traveller communities we represent. An independent TT aims to empower Gypsy, Roma and Traveller voices through authentic, community-led media to foster pride, combat misrepresentation and inspire change. 

For over 25 years, Travellers' Times, a project of Rural Media Charity funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, has been a trusted source of award-winning news and media for and by Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities. Now, we have the chance to take the reins and become a truly independent voice.  

But to ensure this new chapter in Travellers’ Times' journey reflects your needs and interests, we need YOUR help! 

We've created a short survey (10-15 minutes) to gather your thoughts and ideas on how Travellers' Times can best serve you as an independent platform. Your honest feedback is crucial in shaping our future. The questions will allow you to let us know what you think we are doing right and how you think we could improve, as well as questions that address the need for an independent Travellers’ Times. 

All information will be kept confidential. As a thank you for participating, you'll also be entered into a prize draw to win £300! Just be sure to enter your correct contact details at the survey's end if you wish to take part. 

Don't miss this opportunity to shape the future of Travellers' Times! Take the survey today and help us build a media platform that truly reflects the vibrant Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities.
