Resources

We produce materials to support and represent Gypsies and Travellers.

London Gypsies and Travellers has published a wide range of submissions and reports which represent the voice of Gypsies and Travellers in policy decisions affecting their lives. We also produce publications, videos and online tools which support Travellers and Gypsies with information and advice.

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.
