We have been tasked with designing a guide with the Scottish Government as part of our Living Equality project. The publication’s aim is to provide information about the Equality Act 2010, the protected characteristics, and how it should be used by community organisations under the umbrella of third sector and voluntary organisations.

We would like to invite you to take part in our consultation process by sharing your thoughts and observations on the attached draft copy.  The draft copy of the guide shows how the Equality Act 2010 applies to small grassroots organisations in practice. We would also like you to share this further with your management committee, an employee and a volunteer and ask them to share their feedback of the document through the attached questionnaire.

**Please send your response through the feedback form attached, by email to biqbal@wsrec.co.uk

Please send the response as soon as possible and not any later than the 25th of November 2015. Please also forward this within your networks.

If large font document and questionnaire are required please email biqbal@wsrec.co.uk
