Community cohesion to be promoted by adoption of a further Equality Scheme

CABINET endorsement will be sought on December 18 for the Race Equality Scheme 2006.

The document will be Birmingham City Council’s principal framework for meeting its legislative responsibilities under the Race Relations Act – which places a general duty on all public authorities to promote race equality.

Replacing the 2002 version of the Race Equality Scheme, it will help promote equality of opportunity, good relations between people from different backgrounds and eliminate unlawful discrimination in the city.

Planning and preparation of the document has seen the City Council consult widely, with interested parties and stakeholders making contributions from the outset.

Cllr Alan Rudge, Cabinet Member for Equalities and Human Resources, said: “The Race Equality Scheme 2006 underlines our dedication and commitment towards ensuring fairness for all.

“Birmingham is home to a rich mix of diverse races and cultures – making it vitally important that we foster good relationships and links that allow all to prosper and thrive.
