Our Equality and Human Rights Framework: Learning Programme in East Midlands – October and November 2018 (Nottingham)

Date:  11 October and 8 November 2018
Location: Nottingham Community and Voluntary Service, 7 Mansfield Road, Nottingham, NG1 3FB
Cost Free with a £50 refundable deposit

We are running a series of regional workshops for the voluntary and community sector based on our digital tool, the Equality and Human Rights Framework.

This resource aims to help you use equality and human rights more effectively within your organisation.

We’re looking for people at voluntary and community organisations in the East Midlands to register for our Framework learning programme. These workshops will support you to embed equality and human rights into your organisation in order to strengthen your core aims, and improve outcomes for the people you support.

The deadline for registration is  9 October 2018.

Travel bursaries are available on a needs basis.

Here’s the timetable for the learning programme (pdf). We’ll cover:

  • How the framework works in practice
  • 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
  • Understand the ‘train, complain, campaign’ approach for equality and human
    rights advocacy
  • Your own experiences with equality and human rights…along with time for refreshments and networking.

This learning programme is free but to confirm your place we need a refundable deposit of £50. This deposit will be repaid once you have completed the learning programme.

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:

  1. Completing the full day workshop on the learning programme on 11 October 2018
  2. Participating in one or both of the half day workshops on 8 November 2018
  3. Providing a pre-evaluation form (September/October) and a follow-up survey (April 2019) as part of our evaluation programme.

We expect this programme to be popular and so confirmation of participation will be made on a rolling basis, ending 9 October 2018.

The venue is fully accessible for wheelchair users and has induction loops.

Register to the learning programme.
