Gypsy, Roma & Traveller Communities

The Foundation funds Gypsy, Roma and Traveller groups, and also organisations that work directly with, and provide support to, Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities.

We are keen to support work that raises awareness of the issues Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities face.

We are keen to support work that raises awareness of the issues Gypsy and Traveller communities face, and work to combat hate crime, stigma, discrimination and inequalities, including the lack of appropriate accommodation or other service provision.

We are not currently receiving high numbers of applications within this category and therefore have only been making two or three grants per annum.

Over recent years grants have been made towards providing advice and advocacy; building the capacity of community groups; supporting victims of domestic abuse; law and policy reform; inclusion projects and work aimed at changing attitudes.

These are only examples and we are open to receive enquiries about other areas of funding – please contact us if you are unsure about applying.
