Leeds GATE are celebrating 15 years of our organisation this year and the Exec Board have written this statement to share with all our members, friends and supporters:

Leeds GATE are 15!

Fifteen years ago Gypsy and Irish Traveller people working with colleagues and friends from other communities came together to improve quality of life for Gypsies and Travellers in Leeds. Fifteen years later we are thriving as a community led organisation, delivering high quality services, community development and youth work with Gypsy and Traveller communities in Leeds. Last year we delivered 692 advocacy appointments worked with 125 young people and were instrumental in a new 9 pitch local authority site being built, see our annual report attached.
