The Equality West Midlands group is affiliated to The Equality Trust. The aims of the group are to promote a variety of programmes to reduce income inequality through public and political awareness. The group wishes to foster:
- a widespread understanding of the harm caused by income inequality
- public support for policy measures to reduce income inequality
- the political commitment to implementing such policy measures
We are a non-partisan group and call on all political parties to prioritise this issue.
Some of the most deprived areas of the United Kingdom are in the West Midlands. The Group holds regular meeting to help share awareness of the impact of income inequality and the social harms which it generates, both on a national and local level.
