About NATT+

The National Association of Teachers of Travellers + Other Professionals

The Association was established in 1980 in order to address the isolation of teachers of Travellers and to support and encourage their work. It was renamed in 2008 to recognise that there were other professionals needing support who were involved in the education of Gypsy, Roma and Travellers.
