Equalities & Diversity
Support Staffordshire works with lots of groups across the county that have a core belief in issues of equality.
They include groups run by and on behalf of particular communities, from specific countries or ethnic groups. Some groups focus upon tackling a particular area of need such as food banks, carer’s organisations or those tackling homelessness. Others tackle a demographic group that has a particular characteristic, which may include a legally protected characteristic such as women’s groups, older people’s groups and groups promoting equality in race, disability, sexual orientation and religion.
As well as supporting these organisations in their day to day running, we support them with raising the issues of inequality with local, regional and national decision makers and politicians. Occasionally we will act as an advocate, speaking on their behalf.
For further information, or an informal chat, about how we can help you on this subject or any other, please contact your locality office during their opening hours, or on 0300 777 1207 anytime Monday to Friday, 9am - 4pm. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
