Voluntary organisations could be in for a share of £2.5m to raise awareness of employment equality regulations, Deputy Equality Minister Meg Munn announced today. The money will help voluntary and not-for-profit organisations in their work to raise awareness of sexual orientation and religion or belief legislation and builds on the £2m already awarded in the last two years.


A range of organisations will be able to bid for the funding to help them raise awareness with individuals and employers about their rights and responsibilities under the legislation.


Meg Munn said:

"This £2.5 million will benefit organisations around the country in their work to raise awareness of this legislation. It is important that employers and their employees know the facts to enable them to reap the business benefits of a happy and diverse workforce.”


"It is especially important that people understand the law as we work towards the creation of the Commission for Equality and Human Rights and the work it will do in ensuring people are protected from discrimination.”


"Everyone has the right to work without suffering discrimination and this important legislation shows the Government's commitment to outlawing it in Britain."


The Employment Equality (Sexual Orientation and Religion or Belief) Regulations aim to:

* Outlaw discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation, religion or belief in employment and vocational training; and

* Provide protection to all workers from unfair discrimination, harassment and victimisation on these grounds.


The funding is available up to 31 March 2007 and organisations are invited to submit proposals by 27 July.


For details of the application form and notes for those intending to submit proposals refer to the Women and Equality Unit website on http://www.womenandequalityunit.gov.uk/cehr/index.htm
