The Equality and Diversity Forum have launched an online handbook to help advisers, and advice services more widely, to identify and challenge potential discrimination within the benefits system.
The handbook includes a range of tools and practical help to make it easier for advisers to recognise discrimination issues and to help services to build equality rights into advice delivery. It is an essential resource for everyone working in welfare rights.
Currently in beta form, the handbook can be accessed and downloaded at www.edf.org.uk/practicalequality. The full version will be released within the next few weeks.
