3D Equalities Toolkit

There are an estimated 5000 third sector groups and organisations operating across Derby and Derbyshire. Often referred to as the frontline third sector. They include charities (small and large), self-help groups, community associations, single issue campaign groups, faith communities, sports clubs, neighbourhood projects, activity groups, social enterprises as well as many others.
They are supported by 27 local third sector support organisations such as councils for voluntary service (CVS), volunteer centres and other, more specialist, agencies. Those 27 agencies have come together as a Consortium to form Third Sector Support for Derbyshire (3D).

The aim of 3D is to improve, develop, and deliver the best possible third sector support services and organisations for Derbyshire, including Derby City.

The 3D Equalities Toolkit is now available to download as a PDF file.  The Toolkit  is aimed at groups wanting to start to consider the accessibility of their organisation’s activities and services and to consider what the barrier to some groups might be.  It includes a simple checklist, as well as information about local and national sources of further help and support around each of the different equality issues.

The toolkit can be downloaded from the 3D website.
