Swindon Equality Coalition
The Swindon Equality Coalition is a network of groups and people who are interested in making equality reality in Swindon. It has a role in challenging the Council and our partners about how they make decisions and deliver service from an equality perspective. The Equality Coalition also provides a way for the Council to have an on-going conversation about equality with Swindon people and forms a core part of our regular consultation.
The equality coalition works in a number of different ways:
- It holds regular events where there are presentations and discussions about current issues. These are a chance for people to come together and find out more about what is happening, identify successes and difficulties, and be part of a solution
- It invites individuals and groups to take part in specific activities like consultations or working groups looking at particular equality issues
- It identifies a small number of people to be part of the Equalities Advisory Forum – a Council committee which scrutinises the Council’s work on Equality
