Equal Opportunities and Non-Discrimination

The European Commission describes Equal Opportunities and Non-Discrimination as taking…”appropriate steps to prevent any discrimination based on sex, racial or ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability, age or sexual orientation during the preparation and implementation of programmes. In particular, accessibility for persons with disabilities shall be taken into account throughout the preparation and implementation of programmes”.

All projects should demonstrate that they have considered the impact of the supported activities on groups with protected characteristics under the Equalities Acts and ensure that their application includes a description of specific actions they intend to take to actively prevent discrimination.

Applicants should design their project to take account of the needs of the groups at risk of discrimination, and in particular the requirements for ensuring accessibility for persons with disabilities.
