A decade long initiative

The Swindon Equality Coalition, along with the Equality Act, celebrates its 10th birthday this year.
The coalition came into being to support that act.

‘The coalition brings together people and voices from across Swindon’s diverse communities’, says Pam Webb, CEO at VAS.

“During these unprecedented times, it’s extra important to celebrate diversity and address inequality. That way, we’ll ensure that everyone in Swindon has an equal voice and access to support.’

“A simple email to equality@vas-swindon.org is enough to become a member or find out more” she added.
