The Equality and Diversity Forum supported the creation of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Equalities in 2004 and provides the secretariat for the Group. The group's purpose is 'to address discrimination based on all equality grounds and seek to advance equal opportunities for all'. The Group holds regular meetings, often in partnership with Parliamentary Groups working on different areas of equality. Click here for information on the Parliament website.
