The Greater Manchester Combined Authority is seeking to provide contract funding for the facilitation of five Greater Manchester Equality Panels.
Bidders have the ability to submit a tender submission to facilitate all, some or one of the panels: Faith, Race, Women and Girls, LGBTQ+ and Older People.
The Greater Manchester Strategy sets out a clear ambition for ‘a place where all voices are heard and where, working together, we can shape our future’, and this is reinforced in the principles underpinning the Greater Manchester Model; ‘doing with not to’.
Greater Manchester covers the ten local authority areas of Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford and Wigan.
The Equality Panels have been established to help tackle the structural and organisational prejudice and discrimination that causes inequality and injustice in society, through the advancement of equity and fairness in decisions, policies and services across all sectors and communities.
The role of the panels is to:
- Champion Greater Manchester’s cultural heritage and history of community inclusion and social justice
- Advise the Mayor of Greater Manchester and the Greater Manchester Lead for Ageing and Equalities of the challenges and opportunities faced by people linked to their identity
- Constructively challenge political and system leaders for tackling prejudice and discrimination within their organisations and structures
- Proactively support the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) and its public, private and voluntary sector partners to develop effective solutions that tackle inequality and increase equity
