Celebrating equality and diversity

On Tuesday 16 May 2017, the equality and diversity lead for the Trust and the community development worker team delivered a presentation on mental health and equality to members of the Dudley Borough Interfaith Network (DBIN). The event took place at Wellington Road Community Centre in Dudley and attracted over 45 members to the event. Paul Singh, Equality and Diversity Lead, delivered his presentation on religion and belief, one of the nine protected characteristics of the equality act, and spoke about the chaplaincy service within the Trust.

Reverend Bev Thomas delivered a talk entitled ‘What Race?’, which looked at equality and diversity and focused on our stories as immigrants to the UK. Iram Maan, Community Development Worker, finished off the evening with a presentation on mental health services available locally in Dudley. It was an excellent opportunity to raise the profile of both mental health and equality and diversity.
