Campaign materials

We are all so many things...

Grandmother Weareallsomanythings

London Gypsies and Travellers has launched a poster and social media campaign, drawing attention to the stereotyping that defines, limits and discriminates against people from the community.

It aims to challenge public perceptions of Gypsies and Travellers by asking why people only ever see their ethnicity, not their worth.

Here you can download materials to support our campaign. There are posters and postcards to download, print, distribute and put up in public places. And there are images to download for use in social media.

To find out more about the campaign, read our press release.

London mapping

LGT has embarked on a major project to collect and reveal information about London’s Gypsy and Traveller communities. Working with the data analysis organisation Mapping for Change, and funded by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and the Aziz Foundation, it is compiling information about the inequalities, experience and contributions of Gypsies and Travellers across the capital.

The project, called Mapping the Pathway to Equality, is building a detailed evidence base about the size of the Gypsy and Traveller community in London and the accommodation and work issues faced. LGT will use this information to ensure that borough and London plans and strategies take into account and respond to the needs of the Gypsy and Traveller community.

You can download more information about the project here, along with mapping work already completed on accommodation and work.
