We can help the voluntary sector to understand the demands that will be placed on them via commissioned contracts and grants, and how they can respond to this in a positive and progressive manner, helping them in maintaining contracts and develop new service provision.
In today’s economic climate it is vital that the voluntary sector understands and can work with the Equality Act to help develop and grow its profile.
As such, equality implications to service provision have to be integral to all business plans (not a ‘bolt on’ or ‘add in’) and also to any procurement and commissioning activity.
