Cost Free 

Do you want to help improve the quality and quantity of discrimination advice in welfare benefits?

We’ve just launched the Everyday Equality Project (pdf), funded by the Equality and Human Rights Commission. This project will create a practical online handbook, showing how to effectively use equality and human rights to solve everyday discrimination problems in the welfare benefits system.

We want experts, advisers, advice managers, designers and information providers across both discrimination and welfare advice to join our Everyday Equality User Design and Test Panel and participate in our first User Design and Test Panel Workshop on 19 February.

Sign up to attend the User Design and Test Panel Workshop.

The User Design and Test Panel will play an important role by providing key insight on the practicality and quality of our new handbook.

The workshop will focus on:

  • Your experience of identifying discrimination issues and giving discrimination advice in the welfare benefits system
  • The most common and significant equality issues in welfare benefits
  • How to overcome barriers to giving discrimination advice about welfare benefits issues

…along with time for lunch and refreshments.

We will contribute (up to £150) towards reasonable travel expenses, subsistence and participation, for ten panel members who attend the workshop.

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

If you’re not able to participate in the workshop, here’s other ways you can take part in the panel (pdf).

If you would like to join our User Design and Test Panel, please sign up here. If you have any questions about the Everyday Equality project, get in touch with our project lead, Jo Chimes, at jo.chimes@edf.org.uk.

We would like to thank the Equality and Human Rights Commission who funded this event through their grants programme.
