Exciting news is on the horizon for the Gypsy and Traveller community in Dorset as significant steps forward are being taken in 2024. Key among these advancements is our vital partnership between Citizens Advice Central Dorset, Citizens Advice BCP and Kushti Bok.

Kushti Bok, led by Romany Traveller,  Betty Smith-Billington, has expanded with the opening of its new office at 3B Consort House, Princes Road, Ferndown, Dorset, BH22 9JG.
