An inclusive, fair and equal society where people from all groups can develop their full potential, and where the voluntary and community sector is fully participating in serving them.
To be a leading social policy research organisation that focuses on race equality and issues affecting the UK’s BAME communities. To strengthen the voice of BAME communities through increased civic engagement and participation in society, and provide representation on issues affecting BAME communities and the sector that was set up to serve them. ROTA will achieve this by working with BAME communities and the BAME sector, and by informing, influencing and increasing the awareness of decision makers, policy makers and stakeholders in the public, private, voluntary and community sectors.
Consequently, we use the term BAME to refer to all groups who are discriminated against on the aforementioned grounds. This definition includes but is not exclusive to people of African, Asian, Caribbean, European and Eastern European, Irish, Greek, Turkish, Jewish, Roma and South East Asian descent, as well as refugees and asylum seekers.
ROTA will achieve this by working with BAME communities and the BAME and equality third sector, and by informing, influencing and increasing the awareness of decision makers, policy makers and stakeholders in the public, private and third sector.
ROTA is founded upon the four core human rights values that underpin both our internal and external affairs, policy work and relationships with the third sector and stakeholders: Fairness - Respect - Equality - Dignity.
ROTA has identified seven strategic objectives for future activities. Our strategic objectives help to determine the focus and desired outcomes of all ROTA’s project activities and outputs.
