GaTEWAY North Yorkshire is an accommodation and health promotion related support service for Gypsies, Roma, Travellers and Showpeople (GRTS) across North Yorkshire. We work with single people, couples, families and older teenagers. Our support is short-term. It can range from very brief involvement up to a maximum of two years.
Our main aim is to support GRTS wishing to live independently in the community and maintain their cultural identity. We also aim: • To provide an accessible, responsive service for GRTS, in any tenure, who may have difficulty accessing accommodation or services. • To prevent homelessness and support GRTS in maintaining their choice of accommodation and lifestyle. • To support GRTS in developing the skills and confidence to live independently in their chosen setting, whether on sites or in housing. • To support and encourage GRTS to access other services that can help with health, well-being, education and accommodation
