The Inclusion Working Group, established in 2020, provides a safe and inclusive leadership forum for members to consider, influence and embed inclusion best practice in decision making in their own organisations as well as the wider health & social care sector/system of Leeds.

The work of the Inclusion group is underpinned by the principles and spirit of the Black Lives Matter campaign which recognises the historical, current and ongoing structural inequalities impacting on black, minority ethnic and other protected characteristic groups/communities.

The group aims to meet 6 times a year to share information and best practice relating to inclusion. We will have set topics for each meeting, invite key speakers and encourage members to attend and share.

You can find the 2022 plan, in the information and resources section below.

Our next meeting is on Wednesday 13th April 1:30-3:30pm. It will focus on Equality Monitoring and Data Gathering.

We welcome and encourage new members to join us, ensuring that we fully represent our diverse sector and offer this opportunity for learning and sharing best practises as widely as possible.
