Have your needs heard!

October 19, 2022

The Mayor of London is leading a new survey to understand the accommodation needs of Gypsy, Traveller, Showmen and Roma people across London. It will show the need for different types of homes in the next 10 years, so that new sites, stopping places and better homes can be provided for the generations to come.

The research is being done by an independent consultant, called RRR Consultancy, who will ensure that all responses are confidential.

The researchers will be visiting sites, yards and stopping places across London to do face to face interviews.

Gypsies and Travellers who live in bricks and mortar housing can fill in this survey https://rrrconsultancy.questionpro.eu/londongtanabricksandmortar

For members of Roma communities, there is a different online survey, which can be filled in here

RRR Consultancy are also recruiting Community Interviewers to complete surveys mainly on sites across London and potentially with members of the Travelling and Roma communities residing in bricks and mortar. This is a paid work opportunity, and more details can be found here: London GTANA community interviewers role
