Progress Towards Equality conference report
Progress Towards Equality was funded by the European Commission, through the European Community Programme for Employment and Social Solidarity - Progress (2007 - 2013).
The project was the work of a broad consortium of advice sector organisations:
It aimed to develop anti-discrimination and human rights expertise, capacity and awareness among advisers and the general public through:
- Bringing advice organisations together to exchange experience and identify local needs
- Free national and regional conferences to help advisers recognise and deal with discrimination problems
- A user-friendly website for the public:Is that discrimination
- A range of public information materials including a flyer and magazines to inform people about their rights
- Building an evidence base to inform national Equality Commissions, national governments, and national funders of legal advice.
The five conferences - in Belfast, Edinburgh, Cardiff, London and Manchester - aimed to identify and articulate these issues, as well as promote awareness and resources. Eleven key recommendations for policy makers, funders and advice givers were identified.
