Piloting a draft Equality and Human Rights Framework for the Voluntary Sector

In July 2012, the Equality and Diversity Forum and partners invited 15 organisations across the third sector to take part in a pilot exercise to help develop and test a draft Equality and Human Rights Framework specifically designed for voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations.

A steering group comprising of Action for Children Age UK, Campaign for National Parks, the Equality and Diversity Forum, Macmillan Cancer Support, the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations and Shelter are working in partnership with the Equality and Human Rights Commission to create a user-friendly Equality and Human Rights performance framework that voluntary and community sector organisations can use.

The Equality and Human Rights Framework is a practical and flexible approach being developed to help organisations of all shapes and sizes understand how they can become stronger, and perform better, when doing things from an equality and human rights perspective.

Organisations interested in participating were asked to respond by 27 July 2012.
