We promote race equality in social support and public services
What families and friends do for each other and what ‘workers’ do with people who need support
We do this by…
- Exploring what is known about discrimination and disadvantage
- Developing evidenced-based better practice to promote equality
- Disseminating better practice through educational activities, conferences, written material and websites
- Working with national and local partners from the community, voluntary, statutory and social enterprise sectors
We started back in 1987…
The Foundation was established in 1987 as part of the National Institute for Social Work (NISW) and was known as the Race Equality Unit.
We became an independent charitable organisation in 1995, and in 2006, changed our name to the Race Equality Foundation.
