We have started a new branch of TravellerSpace in Devon, with our fantastic team led by Angi Whitehead-Gardiner, who have extensive contacts within Traveller communities in South Devon. They are based in a new office on Totnes High Street, ideally placed to be accessible to project users and to link in with the numerous other support services locally

We are currently seeking a development grant to expand our work with Gypsies & Travellers in Cornwall into Devon.

We’d like to provide 4 part time staff to provide outreach support & advocacy with health, education & welfare needs, as well as any other issues that affect community members.

Our projects are always developed with communities to meet their needs & wishes; we always build in elements of codesign such as steering groups and many opportunities to become involved in our projects, such as an active volunteer & training programme

We intend using the Playbus for visiting Gypsy &Traveller communities in Devon, to provide play opportunities for preschool children,  particularly those who are more isolated

We are seeking to develop partnerships across Devon with a wide range of agencies including councils & police to better support these communities, as well as to be active members of forums which work towards best practice agreed protocols when working with Gypsies & Travellers.

We wish to provide training & workshops to help agencies better understand the needs of the communities.
