Autumn 2011

Volunteer Special Edition

The latest issue of our newsletter lets you know about some of the opportunities for you to get involved with our work and what people who have worked with us have to say about being part of the team.

Working at GATE is a really unique experience; each day has a different landscape, ranging from a constant flurry of people through the door requiring advocacy services, to dealing with media calls and radio presenters.

Leeds GATE toolkitNew from Leeds GATE: our toolkit with advice on making contact with Gypsy and Irish Travellers.

Our work at Leeds GATE has taught us about shocking life expectancy statistics, high maternal and infant death rates, vastly poor educational outcomes, widespread homelessness, depression and mental illness, amongst Gypsy and Irish Traveller families.
