Diversity groups are a fresh approach to developing new and innovative ways of involving socially excluded groups in consultation processes. We want to make sure their views are heard and used in the decision-making procedures of Ealing Council.
The diversity of Ealing's population extends much further than ethnicity; covering age, family types, faiths, languages, cultures and traditions, all of which come together in a unique community which makes the borough, for many, a very special place to live.
Our aim is to develop new ways of involving socially excluded groups in the consultation process. Each group is fully sensitive to the varying natures and diverse needs of the black, minority and ethnic (BME) communities, disabled people, and people of all and no faiths, religions and belief systems; irrespective of their age, gender or sexuality.
Aims of our groups:
- increase resident participation in the form of meetings and feedback sessions
- have a ready forum when involvement and consultations are needed
- ensure residents have a better understanding of Ealing Council
- increase resident satisfaction by shaping services to meet residents' needs
- develop new and innovative ways of involving socially excluded groups in the consultation process
- increase staff awareness of the varying natures and diverse needs of BME communities, disabled people, people of all and no faiths, religions, and belief systems, irrespective of age, gender or sexuality
