London Fairness Commission and ROTA (January 2016) ‘What do we need to do to make London a fairer city?’ An open space event report

The London Fairness Commission was established to organise conversations across the capital in response to this situation, asking Londoners to consider:
  • What is fairness? -
  • Is London fair?

ROTA is keen to keep pressing Government to put in place measures that support free schools to comply with equality legislation (Equality Act 2010) and Public Sector Equality Duties. We know that many existing free schools are failing to do this. This situation should not develop further.

We Told You So!

Read the latest blog 'Is “We Told You So!“ by Andy Gregg, ROTA Chief Executive.

n my blog of 6th March 2014, I forecast that the Immigration Act would make private landlords into unpaid and untrained Immigration Officers.
