Why we are here

Our Equality & Social Justice Unit (ESJU) is a free advice, advocacy and support service for Gypsy, Traveller and Roma individuals, communities and the people who represent them.

We focus on preventing people from going to court by encouraging and supporting them to take action early.

We can help with the following topics:

  • Education
  • Hate crime
  • Discrimination
  • Complaints against the police

We can give you free advice and work with you to try and resolve a problem you may have. If it does lead to court, we will refer you to lawyers who can support you. We can also act as an advocate between you and the lawyer and can support you to go to court if necessary.

We are supported by a pro bono panel of lawyers who kindly provide the ESJU with advice and assistance.

Please contact the Traveller Movement team on esjumanager@travellermovement.org.uk or ring 020 7607 2002 if you require support with any equality or social justice issues.
