Equalities Action Group (EAG)


The EAG consists of equalities professionals and representatives who are working together to support the Bristol Partnership with training, developing relationships with equalities communities and developing the tools to better ensure the Bristol 20:20 Plan benefits all Bristol residents. The EAG meets quarterly and works to ensure that equalities is a key performance measure within the Bristol Partnership.


The group is a source of knowledge and creativity that supports Partners in reducing the disparities that are evident across the city and in identifying inequalities; working to ensure that no one is disadvantaged by colour, ethnicity, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief or because they are transgender.



EAG are looking for a Disabled People's Equality Rep


The Equalities Action Group is looking for a disabled person who feels they could represent the views of disabled people on the Equalities Action Group.

Potential reps will need to be able to indicate the skills and aptitudes they can bring to the role.  They must also be nominated by an organisation either providing services to, or advocating the rights of,  disabled people.
