Equality, diversity, and inclusion

10 Jun 2021

How equality, diversity and inclusion is understood, defined and practiced across Big Local areas.

Since the origins of the Big Local programme, there have been questions about whether those involved were sufficiently reflective of the community. While partnerships are conscious of the need to reflect their local area, more recent evidence suggests some still face challenges.

This research report is an independent deep dive, undertaken by brap, to investigate how people involved with the Big Local programme understand, define, and practice equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in their work. The findings will assist Local Trust’s management of EDI within the programme and the development of EDI based support, guidance, and resources for Big Local areas.
