The Equality and Diversity Forum have just launched their Practical Equality Rights Welfare Benefits Advice Online Handbook.

What is the Practical Equality Rights in Welfare Benefits Advice handbook?

For welfare benefits advisers and information providers working in community groups and advice organisations, the handbook has tips and tools about identifying discrimination. For advisers there are case studies, checklist and tools to help you use the Equality Act to solve your client’s everyday problems in a practical way.

For advice managers, the handbook has a new guide about managing and improving the delivery of discrimination advice.

The handbook also includes a new guide to demonstrating the equality impact of welfare benefits advice, using the Equality and Human Rights Commission Measurement Framework, an A-Z of Equality Rights, a directory of equality resources, FAQs, four downloadable posters, and a downloadable ‘quick guide’.

What’s next?

We are developing a short set of materials to help advice agencies to use the new online handbook and to raise awareness with their advisers. If you are interested in piloting or using these materials please let us know: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

We are hoping to run a small event later in the year, in Manchester. If you are interested in taking part or attending, please let us know: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

We would be pleased to hear from you with questions, suggestions and feedback on the handbook. Please contact us at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Congratulations to the Equality and Diversity Forum on the launch of their Practical Equality Rights Welfare Benefits Advice Online Handbook! It looks to be a great resource and should be great assistance to those in the advice sector especially for those who don’t generally deal with discrimination cases.

Looking forward the sharing of expertise and support on the forum.
