EHRC guide to the UN Disability Convention

In July 2010, the Equality and Human Rights Commission published ‘The United Nations Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities. What does it mean for you?’

The guide will help disabled people to know what their rights are and how to use them. It will help people to challenge injustices and improve services for themselves and others and will help organisations understand what their responsibilities are.

Equality South West Migrant Workers Project report

The Opportunities and Challenges of Migration: A Regional Response (PDF) is the final dissemination report of the Equality South West Migrant Workers Project.

The report looks at issues around migration trends, intentions to stay, the skills of migrant workers and good practice in recruitment and employment. It also highlights the development of a partnership approach to developing policy responses in the South West region and engaging with migrant communities, which may be useful to others.

Marmot Review website

In February 2010, the Marmot Review Team published ‘Fair Society, Healthy Lives’. The report and information about its implementation is available on the Marmot Review website.

The report was the culmination of a year long independent review into health inequalities in England which Professor Sir Michael Marmot was asked to chair by the Secretary of State for Health. The review proposes the most effective evidence-based strategies for reducing health inequalities in England from 2010. Since publication, the Review Team has seen, and worked to support, many developments based on the approach advocated by the review.
