information SERVICE DETAILS

The Equalities Engagement project supports public bodies to engage with diverse communities and community organisations to positively advance the Public Sector Equality Duty in Edinburgh and the Lothians. The project also progresses the capacity and participation of diverse communities across Edinburgh and the Lothians. Our Equality Engagement Officer is responsible for facilitating communication between communities of protected characteristics* and mainstream services. We are always looking for ways to work with a variety of communities of protected characteristics*.

We welcome opportunities to speak to any group and communities about their experiences and issues they may have. For equality and diversity related events we’re putting on, please visit the ELREC events page at http://www.elrec.org.uk/events.

Our ongoing initiative within Equalities Engagement project is Diversity in Public Life, funded by the Scottish Government Equality fund. Diversity in Public Life aims to increase engagement of diverse members of communities in democratic processes and public life across the Edinburgh and Lothians.

*The nine Protected Characteristics in Equality Act of 2010 are age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation
