Review Of Powers

Housing Minister Dominic Raab announced that there will be a review of powers to tackle unauthorised encampments /developments.

Housing Act 1996

This Act defined a person as homeless if they have accommodation but cannot secure entry to it

Homelessness Act 2002

By July of 2003, all local authorities were required to develop housing strategies that reviewed and predicted levels of homelessness within the authority’s area.

Planning Policy For Traveller Sites

the planning system discriminates against Gypsies and Travellers with 99% of applications refused, as opposed to 10% of applications from the settled community.

The deadline for responses is 15 June 2018

Consultation Document

The consultation document has an unfortunate negative tone.

enforcement powers regarding both unauthorised encampments and developments are already sufficient and don’t need to be made any stronger.

It is essential that as many as possible of those who support Gypsies and Travellers respond to this including Gypsies and Travellers themselves.

Press Release

Government review of the law and powers to deal with unauthorised caravan sites and developments has been announced by the Housing Minister.

Support

Please support us to protect and maintain their cultural and traditional way of life. The Gypsy Traveller Demonstration took place on Saturday 21st May 2016 

The Demonstration was a March with the community, placards, horses, banners and a petition! The petition was to support the UK’s Romany Gypsy and Traveller people, in bringing down a new law which seeks to meddle with who they are and deny their children a home.

RIP Quhey 💙 your heart ❤️ will live on forever!! A Long and happy life to little jack!!Yesterday we finally received the letter from our donor family, it was rather emotional to say the least...😥

We now know that the young man who saved Jack was called Quhey and he was only 20 years old when he died in very tragic circumstances.

In the letter his mum & dad tell us that he was one of nine children and how they all miss him dearly. He was an amateur boxer and loved to play football. They describe what a happy person he was, living life to the full and always making the best out of every situation. They said he was a really popular boy and always looked out for others, he used to feed the homeless and comfort the lonely so they knew his final wish would be to donate his organs. He saved a number of lives that day and they said that seeing the photos of Jack doing so well and knowing his liver transplant was a success has brought such comfort to their grieving 💙

They have asked to share Jack’s photos on social media which we have obviously agreed to and they’ve said we are welcome to share their sons photos too. So here they are, from him as a baby to the photo of him in the blue suit at the bottom taken at a family wedding just a few days before he passed away..😪

There isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t think about ‘Jack’s donor’. Now we know all about him and his family it makes it so much more real about just how lucky we are.

I know I bang on about organ donation but did you know there are currently around 6000 people on the UK Transplant Waiting List? And last year over 400 people died while waiting for a transplant. Without people like Quhey and his family there would be even more people dying while waiting on that dreaded ‘list’.

Signing up takes less time than reading this status has so please register your details now if you haven’t done already and please make your wishes known to your family as ultimately they have the final say..

RIP Quhey, you and your family will always have a special place in our hearts, thank you ❤️
