Regional Equality and Diversity Partnerships

Volume 475: debated on Monday 12 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what the name and address of each regional equality and diversity partnership is; and how much funding is allocated to each for 2008-09. (203056)

The Government do not require the creation of regional equality and diversity partnerships. However, such partnerships have been formed in a number of regions and are funded by a variety of organisations, both public (including regional development agencies, regional assemblies, local authorities and the Big Lottery Fund) and private (including business, trade associations and trade unions).

Identifying and disaggregating each public and private organisation’s contribution to their activity could be done only at disproportionate cost.

The names and addresses of those partnerships for which we have contact details are:
