The purpose of this training is to increase people’s confidence and competence in engaging with these communities. It does so by looking carefully at definitions, at why we need to engage, at issues that can hinder as well as help understanding (including common pitfalls) and by focusing on established and developing good practice. The training is based firmly within the context of broader equality and diversity law and principles.

- The need for equality and effective community engagement
- The Equality Act 2010
