Friends, Families and Travellers is a Traveller led charity which has been working for equality for Gypsies and Travellers since 1994. We are the only national charity that works on behalf of all Gypsies, Roma and Travellers regardless of ethnicity, culture or background.
We are a registered charity with a Board of Trustees which has ten Trustees, five of whom are Gypsies or Travellers. Trustees are elected by our members at the Annual General Meeting and are answerable directly to them. Our trustees meet six times each year and meetings are open to all members to attend. We have a professional team of staff who deliver our vision through outreach, advice and policy work, education and training, research and more. The work of our staff is supported by a dedicated team of volunteers. At least half of our staff, interns and volunteers are Travellers.
