Community Law & Mediation today published its Report on The Legal Implications and Lived Experiences of the Caravan Loan Scheme. The Report finds that only 13 local authorities currently offer the Caravan Loan Scheme and that the caravans provided often make unsafe year-round homes for high-occupancy Traveller households. We recommend that the Caravan Loan Scheme be expanded and revised to include increased financial support, better account taken of family size and measures to ensure a better standard of caravan can be purchased. Rental Scheme and Rent to Buy options should be provided.
