Inclusion framework for the voluntary sector in Reading
Azra Raja, RVA’s Inclusion Development Worker, is working on an inclusion framework for the voluntary sector in Reading, to help managers and trustees consider equality, diversity and inclusion in their own organisations. As part of this project, this page highlights inclusion-rated resources and news.
Please contact Azra by emailing email@example.com if you have any questions or would like to have a informal chat around this area.

Charity Governance Code
In December 2020, after a process of consultation the Charity Governance Code has been reviewed and set out clear recommendations and practice on two of its principles. These two principles are Principle 3: Integrity and Principle 6: Diversity, now called Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. These have been updated and published with another wider scale review scheduled for 2023. Charities are encouraged to visit the Code’s website to view and download the new edition of the Code. Explanatory videos and accompanying blogs can also be found on the website.
