As part of the new way of working for Team Doncaster, the Inclusion & Fairness Forum has been tasked with producing a collective, overarching Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Statement to capture the essence and significance of recent events, whilst encouraging each of the member organisations to do more to tackle inequality, disadvantage, and racism through their own policies, processes and practice.
The Inclusion & Fairness Forum has produced a draft Statement and is really interested in your views. The consultation will run until Tuesday September 8 and there are a number of ways to let us know what you think.
View the Statement and complete our online survey here

And our Listening Ear Bereavement Service also wants to hear from BAME communities
Launched in April in the year, the Listening Ear South Yorkshire bereavement service is in place to help people who have lost loved ones during the coronavirus pandemic, whether from the virus or otherwise.
Since launching in April, almost 500 appointments have been accessed by people from across Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield with overwhelmingly positive feedback.
However feedback has also shown that people from BAME communities are less likely to access the service, therefore we’ve launched a short survey to ask people from those communities how the service could better meet their needs.
Please take 5 minutes to answer our anonymous survey here
The service is free to call on 0800 048 5224, email: firstname.lastname@example.org or via the website: www.listening-ear.co.uk/refer. During appointments, people are able to talk to a trained therapist who offers emotional health and well-being and practical support. The helpline is staffed by professional mental health counsellors who use counselling-based skills, however it isn’t a counselling service.
