Who we are and what we did
Hello, we are a team of researchers at Northumbria University. We’d like to share the results of a project we recently completed that explored whether outreach is a good way of delivering health services to Gypsy, Roma and Traveller Communities.
Outreach is any service that is adapted and taken to groups who may experience barriers to accessing health care. We were interested in finding out which types of outreach work, when they work, and why. We hope that the results of this project will inform decisions about the types of outreach that are most useful to Gypsy, Roma and Traveller Communities in improving their health.
Does Leeds GATE do what it says it does? How well are we achieving our aims and objectives? How well do we put our values into practice? We are seeking a consultant to carry out a rapid service appraisal to help us to answer these questions. Click here: Service Evaluation Brief to find out more.
UPDATED We have received this enquiry below:
“ Could you confirm whether you have a specific number of interviewees in mind and how you envisage them being contacted? – whether it’s by phone, e-mail or face-to-face and whether the face-to-face contact would be individual or with groups has implications for our phone and travel costs?”
Leeds GATE members have enjoyed learning all about recording oral history as part of our project exploring the background and history of the Lee Gap horse fairs. The fairs, believed to be the oldest charter fair in England, take place each year in August and September.
The group enjoyed learning all about interview techniques and using recording equipment to practice in time for the first fair in August. There will be a display about the fair in the Leeds GATE marquee at ‘Latter Lee’ fair on the 17th August. This project is funded by the Heritage Lottery small grants programme.
