dont leave it too late negotiate.pngFor over a decade Leeds Gypsy and Traveller Exchange has worked to influence positive local authority responses to Gypsy and Traveller camps.  On the link below you can read about the impact of this work in an Impact Scoping report from National Federation of Gypsy and Traveller Liaison Groups' policy officer, Adrian Jones.  There is still a long way to go but the report shows that it is possible to insert positive language and practice into an area of national policy which is otherwise characterised by negativity and excluding responses.  Well done Leeds GATE!
