Gypsy and Traveller sites and payments

Gypsy and Traveller sites

We have a Gypsy Liaison team. They are responsible for the management of permanent caravan parks in Hull. We help residents to get access to mainstream services. We also liaise with residents and external services to promote community development.

Our services are delivered in line with our policy to Gypsies and Travellers.
