Gypsies and Travellers

Gypsy and Traveller services

The Essex Countywide Traveller Unit (ECTU) is a partnership of Essex County Council, local councils, Essex Fire and Rescue Service and Essex Police. Together, we support Gypsies and Travellers to access services, including:

  • supporting children into school and further education
  • health services
  • site and home fire safety visits

We manage unauthorised encampments on ECTU Partner land, and the 12 local authority sites for Gypsies and Travellers.
