It is a persistent struggle in the voluntary sector for sustainable funding. Whilst we can at GATE generally expect a three-year cycle from many funders, we have recently been commissioned for and been partners in other commissions for, 1 year projects. These projects inevitably carry evaluations, both quantitative and qualitative.

We are excited to share this learning from our recent Health Advocacy project. This reflective evaluation follows a formal evaluation and cost benefit analysis submitted to funders (South & East Leeds CCG) at the end of the project.

My time at GATE has is coming to an end very soon, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has made this experience remarkable and welcomed me into the organisation. This experience has been amazing as I got to learn about the Gypsy and Traveller culture and through the learning we established how similar my culture was to yours. I will definitely miss the long chat and teas.

Human Rights naturally plays a big role in so much at GATE; found both in our values and underplaying what we do in practice.  It is certainly key to advocacy, with the purpose of letting members know what their rights are and how these might best be defended.  What I was reminded of recently by an excellent session from the British Institute of Human Rights, is that we can and should sometimes be more willing to use legal tools to seek redress for wrongs.
