HEALTH ASSET MAP: Leeds GATE (Gypsy and Traveller Exchange)

As part of a wider Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) project at Leeds GATE a health asset mapping session was undertaken with Gypsies and Travellers in Leeds to inform a Health Advocacy project. The map was intended to provide baseline information on the assets (both internal and external) that Gypsy and Traveller communities identified as important to their health. This information would be used to both plan the project priorities and as a benchmark in the evaluation process. The process would be repeated in a years’ time to see what has changed. Of particular interest in this mapping exercise is the way questions have been composed to extract information regarding assets and the use of ‘road’, ‘bridges’ and ‘tunnels’ as metaphors to describe how gypsies and travellers access services.
