Equalities Forum

The Equalities Forum works with the Bradford District Assembly Steering Group and VCS Forums to ensure that equalities work remains an important focus across the Assembly structure.

The Equalities Forum aims to ensure that equalities work (in terms of race, gender, disability, social class, sexuality, age and faith) remains an important focus not just within the VCS and Assembly structure, but that it is also embedded within statutory and private sector services.

The Equalities Forum's work is carried out in accordance with the Bradford District Assembly principles of:

• Independence
• Social justice and sustainability
• Diversity, dignity and respect
• Equality
• Participation and empowerment; responsiveness and accountability
• Collective wealth creation and social entrepreneurship

Co-Chair: Penny Wangari-Jones


Co-Chair: Neal Heard
