Equality and Interculturalism

The Equality Working Group is responsible for implementing the Partnership's Equality Policy. It develops the Partnership's capacity and direction in terms of equality by providing information, training and support to Board, staff and Working Groups. It promotes good practice on equality amongst local community organisations by devising and implementing training programmes, developing good practice guidelines on equality and providing financial support for organisations working with target groups of the Partnership. It also promotes an equality agenda amongst statutory organisations and employers. The Working Group is linked with developments at national level, such as the Equality Authority, and is developing transnational opportunities and links through European Programmes.
