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