A European Parliamentary Training Event will be held at Europe House on 27 January 2014. The aim is to engage with citizens and faith groups to raise awareness of the issues and debates taking place in European Parliament and how citizens can get involved the decision making. The Event will run from 5:20-7:30pm.
"The Equality Act 2010 and the subsequent publication ‘Equality strategy: building a fairer Britain’ highlighted Government aims to devolve power to local communities and promote greater participation and inclusion within a public, political and community context. It is hoped that this will underpin the Government’s policies on the Big Society, integration and localism. Furthermore, with ‘religion and belief’ included in the Equality Act, there is a greater impetus for councils to work in partnership with voluntary and community sector organisations (VCS) and faith based organisations (FBOs) to achieve mutual policy goals, service delivery and social action objectives, as well as tackling the macro government agendas on partnership, community empowerment and countering violent extremism."
