Equal Treatment: January Project update

Equal Treatment is a new project aiming to challenge racism and health inequalities through strengthening self-advocacy and peer support.

The work includes a training programme for self-advocacy and family groups and support for community groups led by minority ethnic groups.

Equal Treatment will help groups think about how to be more inclusive and good allies to tackle racism.

We are pleased to have chosen delivery partners for the project just before Christmas.

In this update you can read more about each of them.

Changing Our Lives will be working with self-advocacy groups.

Changing Our Lives is a rights-based organisation, so human rights underpin everything they do.

They work alongside disabled people and people experiencing mental health difficulties, of all ages, as equal partners to find solutions to social injustice and health inequality.

All of their work is rooted in the belief that no one is too disabled and no one’s mental health is too complex to lead an ‘ordinary’ life.
