About the Project

A new project in partnership with Innovate Trust which builds awareness, education and understanding of equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) and the 9 Protected Characteristics under the Equality Act. 


  • This project aims to recruit a minimum of 30 volunteers, some of which will have disabilities.
  • The aim is to work in small groups to research, plan and deliver the accessible training sessions.
  • Volunteers will also work together to produce an EDI film to build awareness of EDI across the Third Sector.
  • In-person and digital volunteering opportunities available. 


Aiming to make EDI relatable, understanding unconscious bias and the importance of inclusion. We will end the project by producing an EDI film made by disabled adults, for disabled adults.

Training Sessions:

  1. What equality means to me?
  2. Have you ever been treated unfairly because of who you are?
  3. Understanding Protected Characteristics.

  6. How could things be better?
