Based in the North West, EqualityUK is an independent entity that works across the whole of the UK. Our aim is to lead the way ‘Promoting a fairer future for everyone, celebrating Equality and Diversity through support and networking opportunities’. We continue where Equality Britain left off, established 15 years ago Equality Britain was at the forefront of the promotion of E&D issues in Education, Employment and Housing.
We work to achieve the removal of the barriers to employment, education and housing that face so many. We recognise that stereotyping and prejudice are still deeply entrenched in society. Working with disadvantaged groups to help raise self esteem and aspirations, support people into training and point people in the right direction to achieve their goals.
We also recognise that if we are to achieve a fair and equal society we need a shared regional approach. We work with partners and representatives from all strands, sectors and agencies to achieve this.
We aim to help as many disadvantaged groups as possible.
