Join the Equality and Human Rights Network
This network – run in partnership with Race Equality First and Diverse Cymru – is open to any third sector organisation working in Cardiff on any area of Equality and Human Rights.
We welcome new members.
Members can feed in views of people from disadvantaged communities and people facing discrimination in all areas of Cardiff.
The network discusses important Equality and Human Rights issues to change legislation, policy and practice together and make a difference to people’s lives.
We meet quarterly. Meetings include opportunities to:
- Feed in stories, experiences and views from your service users and citizens on equality and human rights issues
- Work together to jointly respond to key consultations and other opportunities to influence
- Plan and run awareness raising campaigns and other work together
- Take joint action to tackle inequalities
- Share information on your events, campaigns, projects and work with other organisations
Between meetings we share these stories, information and joint work by email.
To join the network email Thoria at email@example.com or call (029) 2048 5722.
Please let other community groups or organisations you work with know about the network.
Diverse Cymru engages with both Local and National Government and the public sector on the issues that are most important in promoting equality across Wales, particularly where these issues effect people who would fall under one or more of the protected characteristics, by developing policy positions and offering practical recommendations.
Part of this process involves responding strategically to Welsh Government consultations that will have the biggest impact on people affected by inequality across the nation. Unfortunately, and although we share the details of these current consultations with our supporters, there are often too many being undertaken simultaneously for us to be able to provide a comprehensive response in every case. If you have an interest in giving your views on consultations around:
- Mental Health services
- Social care
- Welfare and benefits
- Social exclusion
- Hate crime and community safety
Please let us know by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Or by post:
