Fife Centre for Equalities works with individuals, communities groups and organisations across all sectors. We give informal and independent advice and support regarding the Equality Act 2010. However, we cannot act as a mediation service or legal representative.
Our focus is on finding practical solutions based on good equality practice, toolkits and briefings updates on best practice in equality, diversity and inclusion. We also listen to Community Concerns about equality and work with partners to improve practices in the long-term. Where appropriate, we will signpost enquiries to local organisations providing the most relevant services.
If you have an urgent issue or need immediate help, you should report the incident by dialling 999, and asking the operator for the Police.
