Welcome to Bradford Equity Partnership

Equity Partnership is a charity set up and delivered by LGBT people in Bradford and the surrounding areas.


Training

Equity Partnership delivers training to a wide range of organisations to give them the knowledge and tools to combat homophobia and transphobia and to help them create LGBT friendly workplaces and services.

Training & Awareness

Influence

We support LGBT groups and individuals to have a say in the decisions taken by agencies, which affect our lives, and work in partnership with other voluntary and statutory agencies, such as Bradford Council and Bradford Hate Crime Alliance.

Our Influence


The Equity Centre

Our community centre provides a safe and relaxed space for all LGBT people to socialise and learn. It is also available for hire, being a fully-equipped training resource and a venue for events right in the centre of Bradford.

The Centre

Research

NHS EQUALITY PANELS 2017

You are invited to attend the NHS Equality Delivery System (EDS2) Performance Panels in December 2017.

At the panels Airedale General Hospital Foundation Trust, Bradford District Care Foundation Trust and Bradford Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust alongside the 3 CCG’s for Bradford and Airedale will present evidence to you on what they have been focussing on to tackle health inequalities and improve staff experience and satisfaction for people from the equality protected characteristic groups. That evidence will explain the impact that work has made and what the ongoing issues are for each organisation.

You will be able to decide whether the self-assessment grade that the organisations have given themselves for their work is the right grade based on the evidence you see and the information you hold in your role as VCS member, staff member or patient.

There are 4 panels. Please attend the one that is most relevant to you and/or your organisation. You may attend more than one. That way we get to hear from the community through your attendance.

 

Panel 1 Disability and Age 4 December 13:00 – 15:30

Room 6 at Bradford District Care Foundation Trust, New Mill, Saltaire

 Panel 2 Race and Religion or Belief 5 December 9:15 – 11:45

Room 6 at Bradford District Care Foundation Trust, New Mill, Saltaire

 Panel 3 Sexual Orientation and Trans 11 December 9:30 – 12

at the Equity Partnership Building, 82 Grattan Road, Bradford BD1 2LU

 Panel 4 Gender and Pregnancy and Maternity 11 December 13:00 – 15:30

Equity Partnership Building, 82 Grattan Road, BD1 2LU

 

There is no payment for your involvement however the benefit is that you will shape how the organisations are recorded as performing, what their ongoing priorities need to be and what gaps we have and perhaps don’t know about.

If you have any queries or would like to attend please contact Lisa Wright, Head of Equality, Bradford District Care Foundation Trust, Mobile 07738985825, Lisa.wright@bdct.nhs.uk.  Please state which community of interest you will be representing.
