Want to use equality and human rights more effectively within your organisation?
We’re heading to Liverpool to deliver two workshops to introduce our Equality and Human Rights toolkit, in partnership with Liverpool Charity and Voluntary Services. Join us there!
This free digital toolkit is for and by the voluntary and community sector (VCS). It will support you and your organisation to embed equality and human rights into your work, and improve outcomes for the people you support.
We’re looking for people at voluntary and community organisations in the North West to register for our learning programme.
Travel bursaries are available on a needs, and first come first serve basis.
Here’s the timetable for the learning programme (pdf). We’ll cover:
- How the framework works in practice
- The implications of Brexit on local and national funding
- The rights in the Equality Act 2010 and Human Rights Act 1998 that can help our sector
- Explore how a human rights based approach might improve customer service, user experience or outcomes in your organisation
- How to use your learning to better involve your communities in the design, delivery and evaluation of your services
- How to establish service users as rights holders
We want the widest possible range of community groups and voluntary organisations to attend – no matter what your size, or level of experience, is.
In return, we ask that you commit to:
- Attending both full day workshops on 3 April and 7 May 2019
- Providing a pre-evaluation form (April 2019) and a follow-up survey (August 2019) as part of our evaluation programme.
The venue is fully accessible for wheelchair users, has an induction loop system and there are accessible parking spaces adjacent to the building.
The deadline for registration is 1 April 2019.
