Abstract

Small grassroots level voluntary sector organisations with very little resources have to be facilitated to adopt Equality ethos in their policies and practices. This guide is for smaller grass roots organisations such as voluntary, community, charity, religious or belief organisations that provide any goods, facilities or services to members of the public.

The aim of this guide is to facilitate these organisations to consider equality and diversity issues in their service provision and also to understand the value of equality. The guide contains a checklist on page 12 for an organisation’s perusal.

West of Scotland Regional Equality (WSREC) has been instrumental in building minority ethnic voluntary sector infrastructure in the West of Scotland, through its Living Equality Project. This guide is one of the outcomes of the Living Equality Project.
