Welcome to Kushti Bok!
At Kushti Bok we are dedicated to spreading awareness about race equality and aim to do this through cultural awareness and understanding!
We are a group of like-minded people made up of Gypsies, Travellers and others who have strong links with those communities, regardless of race, religion or sexuality. With the support of Kingston Maurward College, we endeavor to give a voice to the Gypsies and Travellers of Dorset.
The group was formed to provide training opportunities for Gypsies and Travellers. However, in the last 10 years we have found our self-taking on many tasks including; monitoring services provided to Gypsies and Travellers, acting as a consultee body for local and central Government consultations, acting as a third party when liaising with local authorities and police services, tackling negative media stereotypes by engaging with the media, attending and organizing cultural events and showcasing the many skills of our communities.
