Service description

We are a small team offering support to all members of the Gypsy, Showmen and Traveller Communities of all ages within Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. We only work with Gypsies and Travellers. We use our experience and understanding of your culture to promote public health in the community.

We will come and visit you wherever you are living or a place that suits you and us. We visit adults, children and babies. We can also help you access a local GP, dentist or optician. We can help you to improve your health by giving advice, remind you to attend health checks and screenings, tell you about other services and refer you to them if needed. We can also give information on childhood injections (immunisations).

The Travelling Families Team now have a confidential text messaging service where you can get advice and support. Text us on 07520 615 384 (text only).
