Antiracism Practice Learning Hub

The GLA is establishing an Anti-Racism Practice Learning Hub in co-production with key Health partners and race equality organisations. It intends to deliver training, share best practice and provide peer networking and support to participating organisations with the aim of creating a more anti-racist health and care sector that reduces inequalities experienced by Black, Asian and minoritised Londoners. Future Hub iterations will expand to cover other sectors.

The Anti-Racism Hub is envisaged as a collaborative online and in-person learning and peer support network. Potential services include: guidelines on becoming an anti-racist organisation, what that means and how to take tangible steps to do so, access to the latest toolkits, training and racism-informed data as well as peer support both online and offline.

The Hub is one of the outputs from the Mayor's Building a Fairer City Plan, which focuses on addressing the structural inequalities that caused certain communities to experience disproportionate impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, and also the London Health Inequalities Strategy which aims to make London a healthier, fairer city. You can read more about the Health Inequalities Strategy here:

Core current partners include the Mayor of London, NHS London, Office for Health Inequalities and Disparities (OHID) and the Association of Directors of Public Health London, London Councils, HEAR and London Plus.

HEAR Equality and Human Rights Network

HEAR Equality and Human Rights Network is a network of voluntary and community sector organisations across London working for equality, rights and social justice and against discrimination. We are currently funded by City Bridge Trust, Trust for London and the National Lottery.

Under our Bridging Divides funding we work to ensure that specialist equality and human rights groups, particularly the smaller and user led ones, and the Londoners they work with, can connect and work together across London and across equality specialisms. With our members we work to make equality issues central in local and regional decision making, and to raise awareness and work more closely with universities, think tanks, professional bodies and business. This funding also supports our core activities as a network: regular bulletins and information provision, knowledge sharing, signposting, website and networking.

The Trust for London project funds our Policy and Campaigns work, which supports organisations to campaign together on equality and rights issues of joint importance. Currently campaigns are focused around support for Deaf and disabled refugees and asylum seekers and Digital Exclusion and we are currently developing a theme with members on Decent Homes as a Human Right. We lead for Disabled customers on the National Asylum Stakeholder Forum Equality Sub-Group, who work alongside the Home Office to ensure the rights of asylum seekers are protected, and established and used to host Charities Challenging Hate Crime, the London pan equality hate crime network.

In the NetEquality project, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund Reaching Communities, through the Cornerstone Fund, dozens of smaller user-led and ‘grass roots’ equality groups and equality partners in London are working together. Over an initial two years, to mid 2021, we will design, test and pilot exciting new ways to use networking and online tools to strengthen our connections and quickly and easily share information and knowledge. We will be exploring ways to join up our voices for solidarity and influence and for more coordinated, effective campaigning to fight discrimination and improve equality in London. Through Stronger Together, funded by Awards for All, we provide activities and support for individual campaigners and those in the smaller, user-led and grass roots groups.
