Dorset Race Equality Council works in partnership with public, private and voluntary agencies to share knowledge, experiences and to collaborate on projects to best meet the needs of the various ethnic community groups who live in the local area.

We offer input into the delivery of key public services such as health and social care, policing (amongst others) to promote cultural sensitivity, inclusion and equal opportunities.

We offer interactive training in unconscious bias, cultural awareness, what is discrimination and how to tackle it.

We can support local agencies with the writing and implementation of Equality Impact Assessments. We can also check Equality Impact Assessments and act as a critical friend.

We offer Equality and Diversity Health Checks and provide a full report on how an organisation can improve their Equality and Diversity policies and procedures.

If you are interested in any of those services, please phone on 01202 392 954 or email
