We want Gypsy and Traveller communities to be empowered to stay healthy and well and live independently; we want to tackle inequalities in health experienced across genders and ages that these ‚Äòseldom seen, seldom heard‚Äô communities encounter often on a daily basis. ‚ÄúWe don‚Äôt have no body to help us on here, we do need someone to give us advice and stuff‚Äù comment from a member of the Gypsy and Traveller communty.

This project will work with members of the Gypsy and Traveller communities to: 1. Create training packages to deliver to NHS / social care front line staff, providing necessary knowledge and cultural awareness to support delivery of accessible services, removing barriers; 2. Address personal beliefs, perceptions and cultural issues preventing access to and use of health / care services; 3. Provide support to access to NHS, care services and uptake of health initiatives e.g. anti / post natal services, CVD screening, long-term conditions - without equity their health status is likely to remain poor; 4. Provide community-based life style change initiatives. 5. Provide myth busting events - bridging the gap between members of all settled and gypsy and traveller communities Finance: Project Workers - Project Coordinator and Outreach Worker - ¬£40K Support Costs - ¬£8K Community Events- ¬£5K
