Partnership of equality experts

Chwarae Teg managed this partnership of equality experts, with funding support from the Welsh Assembly Government / ERDF from 1997 to 2005.

The partnership promoted good equality practice in the European Structural Funds and supported development of the equalities content of the Programme documents; trained WEFO assessors, local authority European/Equality officers and voluntary sector European advisers.

The partnership also wrote two sets of equality guidelines — Equal Opportunities Guidelines for European Programmes in Wales —, which were designed to explain how projects should tackle mainstreaming in relation to the Structural Funds; and — Applying for European Structural Funds in Wales – Equal Opportunities Additional Guidance for Applicants and Assessors —, which illustrates how assessors and applicants should consider the equality input in applications.
