Are you familiar with the new Equality Act and the changes it has brought about? Do you want to develop best practice within your organisation in relation to equalities?

OSDC has developed a number of audit checklists to guide you through the legislation and help you assess your organisational strengths and weaknesses in relation to equalities.
The toolkits can be used as a self-assessment exercise and contain detailed explanatory notes describing key requirements and best practice in each area.

There are four checklists in total:

  1. Best Practice
  2. Service Delivery
  3. Employment
  4. Working with Volunteers

They can be bought individually or separately.
