Cork Traveller Visibility Group Ltd.

Building

The TVG eventually bought 25 Lower John Street in Cork. This was a dis-used button factory and parts of it were derelict and in very bad condition. A major renovation job was required which took 3 years to complete. The building was opened quite timely in 2005 when Cork became the European City for Capital of Culture. TVG is now 10 years in this building. To commemorate this it has documented the lives of Travellers through photographic evidence that is depicted throughout the building on the walls of the centre. The building is now operating at full capacity with a 20 place crèche facility, a large team of health workers delivering a health programme to members of the community to ensure more positive health outcomes for Travellers, a Traveller specific Drugs and Alcohol Support Project, CE scheme places and administration for a number of projects in the Cork area relating to Travellers which do not have an admin infrastructure. It also houses 2 regional groups for Travellers including the Southern Traveller Health Network and the Traveller Culture Awareness Training Programme. It did have various funding streams but is now aligned to the Traveller Health Unit, HSE South with some Childcare funding.
