Job: Policy and Practice Officer

Race Equality Foundation promotes race equality in social support (what families and friends do for each other) and social care (what ‘workers’ do for people who need support).  We do this by exploring what we know about discrimination and disadvantage.  We also develop interventions that will overcome barriers and promote equality.  Finally, we disseminate good practice through training, conferences and written material.

The Foundation has delivered change through a range of ground-breaking projects from the evidence-based Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities parenting programme, to the pioneering research which saw us interview 38 black and minority ethnic young disabled people to understand their experience of independence and independent living to being a founding member of the Coalition of Race Equality Organisations (CORE).  We continue our effort to progress race equality through demonstrating what is possible, such as our work on improving blood pressure testing by African and Caribbean men through the use of community agents such as barber shops.  At the same time we continue to intervene in national debates and programmes such as our work on mental health and our work with the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse.
