The Equality Steering Group is chaired by the Executive Director of Resources, Malcolm Johnston, and has been working over the last year to improve our service for minority groups in our community.

As well as meeting our legal requirements this is also key in improving our Customer Care Standards. It is one of the key Corporate Projects and has Councillor Clark as as a representative of Cabinet on the group.  It also includes representatives for each service area and a number of Community organisations.
