This training is being provided by ROTA in association with GAVS. It is free, but please book your place in advance!

 

Objectives of workshop are to:

  • Provide a basic introduction to the Equality Act 2010
  • Explain what types of discrimination are unlawful and who is protected
  • Introduce the new Public Sector Equality Duty and explain how this duty impacts on public bodies and may affect voluntary and community organisations as recipients of funding and contracts from public sector bodies
  • Explain how to review and update your policies and procedures and take practical steps to comply with the Act
  • Answer your questions and provide information to identify sources of information, assistance, guidance and advice

 

Participants will receive ROTA’s detailed guide to the Equality Act 2010 and we will use this resource during the training course

Priority will be given to civil society organisations working in Greenwich, but members of statutory bodies are welcome if there are remaining places.
