ERCS is delighted to be one of 48 organisations awarded a grant from the new Equality and Human Rights Fund over the next three years.
The grant will enable us to recruit a Rights Officer to lead our work to increase awareness and participation of equality groups on the human right to a healthy environment.
We will collaborate with organisations who represent or support equality groups to build people’s capacity to exercise their rights in relation the environment, and inform the policy and practice of public bodies to advance environmental justice.
The grant will also allow us to expand our free legal advice service to equality groups to improve participation and access to justice on the environment.
