Equally Ours (previously the Equality and Diversity Forum) is the only UK-wide pan-equality and human rights organisation.
We have three types of organisational membership: members, associates and observers.
Our membership is core to who we are and what we do, playing an active and vital role in influencing and driving social change. This powerful collective and cohesive voice is our greatest strength.
We currently have over 80 members, associates and observers, spanning a diverse range of equality, human rights and social justice issues.
Full membership is open to national not-for-profit organisations working on policy issues related to equality, human rights and social justice, and to regional and local organisations working on these issues with a national perspective.
