Hate Crime concerns for families on Camps

By Helen Jones |  August 29, 2017 |

Its been a busy summer for unauthorised encampment, probably due to the Government's recent change to the planning definition of travellers [sic] which obliges families to prove that they regularly travel in order to remain eligeable to live on, or develop their own, Gypsy sites.  Concern is growing that lurid media reporting, inflammatory statements by politicians, and overall failure to manage encampment positively, is leading to an increase in hate crime attacks on Gypsy and Traveller people.

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.
