Equality Guidance for Charities:
In spring 2015 the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland consulted on a draft version of its ‘Equality Guidance for Charities’. As part of this consultation, responses were received from 17 organisations.
Guidance has now been finalized and is available now in the Charity essentials section of the Charity Commission’s website at https://www.charitycommissionni.org.uk/charity-essentials/equality-guidance-for-charities/.
It is hoped the guidance will be a useful resource, helping to promote awareness and understanding of the complexities of equality legislation as it affects charities in Northern Ireland.
A Consultation Report has also been produced which provides an overview of the public consultation process and outlining how responses received were considered. This report is available now at Consultation report.
