Equality Forums

We support several forums that play a vital role in overseeing and improving our work on equality and diversity.

We support the following equality forums:

Equality and Fairness Commission

The EFC is a city-wide voluntary community forum with representatives attending from across different areas of equality including race, gender, age, disability, religion and belief, and sexual orientation.

The group exists to

  • Take a strategic approach on equality and diversity issues that impact on the lives of Nottingham citizens
  • Influence decision making of One Nottingham and its partner organisations to improve the lives of citizens who experience discrimination, disadvantage or deprivation
  • Provide constructive feedback to partners on their policies and practices that leads to positive outcomes for people with protected characteristics

Disability Involvement Group

The Disability Involvement Group monitors progress and provides consultation on disability issues. It is made up of representatives from the community and voluntary sector.

To get involved or to request an agenda item please contact the Equality and Community Relations Team.

Disability Identification Cards

Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender Consultative and Scrutiny Forum

The LGBT Forum meets quarterly. This Forum is made up of representatives from the LGBT community and voluntary and community organisations, and provides advice and consultancy on Council policies and services.
