Gypsy Roma Traveller Leeds
The permanent site of the Gypsy Roma Traveller Communities
An audio CD of seven stories called Dragonory was specially prepared by Jess Smith the Scottish Storyteller for the Travellers Storytelling Project.
Listen to one of stories to whet your appetite.
We have established a well respected service, which has national recognition for quality service delivery, innovation and excellent relationships with the Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities.
As a Service we have established strong relationships with the Gypsy Roma Traveller communities, who live on official sites, private sites, the roadside and in housing across the city.
We work with these communities to help raise their aspirations and we have just run a very successful parental self-development course ‘STEPS’ and also an innovative pilot for the Department for Children, Schools and families, the 16-19 ‘Futures’ programme.
We have developed successful inter-agency partnerships, which have helped extend the range of services available to these communities.
We are working with other departments across the Council to plan further accommodation for those families, who are still in need of decent accommodation, in line with new housing regulations.
A DVD, Wall Poster, Storyteller & Artist Portraits all wrapped in an attractive package.
This Learning Resource can be used effectively across the Curriculum – Literacy, Drama, Art, Music, History, PSHE and Citizenship and across all Key Stages 1 – 4 and for In Service Training (INSET).
The Roma originally came from the Indian subcontinent, which they left about a thousand years ago. They entered Europe in the 13th Century. When they arrived in Europe they were thought to be from Egypt and were called Egyptians, which is where the word "Gypsy" comes from.
