to implement the Socio-Economic Duty of the Equality Act
We are working with The Equality Trust and Just Fair to use The Acting Class to help promote a campaign that urges the UK Government to implement the Socio-Economic Duty of the Equality Act 2010.
This provision requires public bodies to adopt effective and transparent policies to reduce the inequalities that result from socio-economic disadvantage. However although on the statute book, successive governments have failed to implement the Duty.
You can add pressure on the government to recognise socio-economic inequality in a meaningful way by writing to your MP and asking them to support the Early Day Motion 591 that calls on the government to bring the Socio-Economic Duty into effect.
