Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Network

The CCG works closely with partners and people who have an interest in equality, diversity, and inclusion issues, and who are able to represent the views of different communities in Sunderland.

The CCG regularly engages and communicates with voluntary and community sector organisations (VCSOs) in Sunderland through a ‘virtual’ Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Network. We regularly email out information for VCSOs to share with their service users, and ask VCSOs to get involved in our consultation and engagement activities.

In addition, we hold quarterly Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion face-to-face meetings. These meetings are usually held on the first Wednesday of every quarter, between 2 – 4pm.

Dates of future meetings are:

  • 1 May 2019, 2 – 4pm (venue to be confirmed)
  • 7 August 2019, 2 – 4pm (venue to be confirmed)
  • 6 November, 2 – 4pm (venue to be confirmed)
  • 5 February 2019, 2 – 4pm (venue to be confirmed)

If you are interested in getting involved with the Network, or would like further information on the meetings, please email SUNCCG.sccg@nhs.net  or call 0191 5128458.
