Local forums across Falkirk, Stirling and Clackmannanshire where people can discuss issues relating to, e.g.: Housing Healthcare Transport Employment Safety EVENTS Black History Month raise awareness of

issues BME people face but also share cultures LGBT History Month INEQUALITY: MY THOUGHTS Some people lack awareness of what rights they have and what to do when they are violated

Access to employment that matches skills is an issue Underreporting of bullying, hate crime, discrimination and harassment Lack of budget for inclusion in the Third Sector (e.g. interpreting,

translation, accessibility) Education and sharing real life stories is important to reduce inequalities Working in partnership with other third sector organisations helps
