Despite firm misgivings about the purpose, design and possible consequences of the Government's current 'Consultation on unauthorised development and encampment', we have made a submission.  The deadline for the consultation is Friday 15th at close of play if you would like to make your own comments.

We are incredibly proud to share our delight at being one of the 2018 GSK/Kings Fund Impact Award winners.  To achieve this we have undergone incredibly detailed examination which was tough, but actually really useful and rewarding especially when we realised we had beaten 350 other applicants to be among the final eight winners.  It’s really great to know that the ‘nuts and bolts’ behind the scenes of what we do has withstood such scrutiny and come out on top. So we have a lovely award on the shelf in the office and a lovely unrestricted £30,000 in the bank.  Apart from that what does winning the award mean for us practically?

A long anticipated statement today from Housing Minister Dominic Raab MP announced a  review of 'Powers to deal with unauthorised encampments'.  Whilst we welcome any opportunity to discuss management of Unauthorised encampment by Gypsy and Traveller people, Leeds GATE are dismayed and disheartened by the tone of the announcement which suggests a foregone conclusion.
