A toolkit to make equalities work

Thanks to Sandy Adirondack’s Legal Update for the following: the Race Equality Foundation has published a 16-page toolkit for voluntary and community organisations on using and complying with the Equality Act. Intended primarily for organisations working with children, young people and families, but suitable for other organisations as well.
