Communicating about race equality

Race on The Agenda, Black Training and Enterprise Group (BTEG) and The Runnymede Trust are working together to understand the communications capacity and needs of the race equality sector in London and to – hopefully – create more opportunities to collaborate on messaging on race equality.

We’re keen to hear not only from BAMER groups, but also those working on anti-racism agenda and race equality. We’ve created this short survey to gain a sense of capacity and we’d be really grateful if you could take 10 minutes to complete it. Feel free to circulate to any groups you work with...Read more

The need for Councillors to be trained on the Equality Act

New evidence on informal exclusions

Since 2012 ROTA has been gathering evidence on informal school exclusions - and its various guises such ‘off rolling’ and ‘home schooling’ -  to the detriment of pupils and their families who have experienced this. We also have evidence that young BAME pupils may be disproportionately affected.  It comes as no surprise to ROTA that not only is this practice continuing in 2018 but may be increasing.
