East Notts Traveller Association

This group aims to improve the quality of life for the Gypsy and Traveller community across Nottinghamshire. It offers advocacy and support services to individuals, and a telephone helpline and helps more than 300 people a year. It also runs awareness sessions in schools and other local venues, to increase understanding of the issues the Gypsy and Traveller community face and to combat stigma.

In February 2015, the Foundation gave a £1,000 grant as a contribution towards the Association’s travel and volunteer expenses.

Kushti Bok Charity

In October 2014 the Foundation awarded £2,500 over two years towards the general running costs of Kushti Bok. This charity works across Dorset to provide support and assistance to Gypsies and Travellers. It helps individuals with accessing services and education, tackling racism and overcoming prejudice, and promoting inclusion in the community.
