Never Going To Beat You film release
For 16 Days of Activism, we released our film ‘Never Going to Beat You’. Never Going To Beat You is a film about domestic abuse, based on true stories of 18 Romany Gypsy and Irish Traveller women. It is a powerful and hard hitting piece of art meant to raise awareness and to educate.
Threading aspects of the women’s lives together, the film tells the story of 17-year-old Moira La Bas, who is about to sit her ‘A’ Levels when she meets Patrick, an older divorcee at a St Patrick’s Day dance. He woos her and wins her over, but Moira’s mother Evie foresees disaster and tries to rally the community to save her daughter.
Join us for this opportunity to watch a masterful portrayal of how domestic abuse can destroy lives.

Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Project
The Traveller Movement have been funded by City Bridge to upskill domestic abuse workers across London. Previous research has shown that 98% of domestic abuse service providers felt they needed more specialised training on how to support Romany (Gypsy), Traveller and Roma survivors. To remedy this, we will be developing essential resources, training frontline workers and upskilling advocates from the Romany, Traveller and Roma communities. As well as this, we will be looking at the key intersecting issues of mental health and healthy relationships. This three-year project will focus on empowering both domestic abuse advocates and community members.
This project has been at the heart of our work for over a decade. It has since developed and branched out to new areas including: advice and support, training for service providers and developing a Good Practice Guide
