One Voice 4 Travellers

This organisation operates across East Anglia from its base on a Gypsy and Traveller site near Wisbech.  It works in partnership with others to provide support to Gypsy and Traveller communities, reduce all forms of violence, improve health and wellbeing, and promote equality and good relations with the settled communities.  It is a well-established and well-regarded organisation offering advocacy, advice and help to individuals, and runs a number of projects.

The Foundation has awarded One Voice 4 Travellers a grant of £9,950 over a two-year period. This is towards the GATE (Gypsy and Traveller Empowerment) project which is building on previous domestic abuse work titled ‘Breaking the Cycle of Abuse’. GATE will raise awareness and provide information to women about healthy relationships, choice, control and abuse, and empower them to be more in control of their own lives.  It aims to involve 60 women living in or travelling through Norfolk over the two years – to increase their confidence, self-esteem and mental wellbeing; to give them a voice and empower them to make choices for themselves.
