The ability to contribute to shared prosperity is a fundamental part of what it means to be alive. However, too many still face a situation where their contribution is not recognised. Therefore, we need to understand that every individual has a right to be heard: their strength demands recognition, their experience must be valued, and their knowledge deserves public appreciation. Recognising the significance of contribution is the first step to achieving greater equality. Sharing a sense of belonging, participating in joint activity and finding meaning in common purpose all adds up to a sense of community life that enhances our wellbeing.

Über den Autor

I lived in France for many of my formative years. This has endowed me with a passionate and spirited approach to living and learning and a vigorous enthusiasm for lively debate, fine foods and wine – life’s great pleasures! It has also given me the advantage of being proud and unashamed of the gifts I bring to others, and a direct approach in all matters – qualities that have proved invaluable throughout my working life.

What others are saying about A different perspective on EQUALITY

Provides many valuable instruments for awareness raising, training and development towards a more civilised and civilising community. It is a highly significant and challenging contribution to thinking and practice towards a better society and stronger communities in the interests of all of us. This is a thought provoking book from which we can and should all learn. It oozes integrity, authenticity and humanity.

Tony Gelsthorpe, Secondary Headteacher

This is an excellent handbook. As a whole it deals with the global and institutional context of equality/inequality in an easy to understand and pro-active manner. I cannot recommend this resource highly enough and I hope that we will be using in our training events at Bradford University.

Patrick Allen, Bradford Media School, University of Bradford

The book’s got a lovely rhythm - Reflect, consider, get an idea … Reflect, consider, … I love the way the purple pages go to the heart of the reader, and the green pages to the head. I love the idea of all valuing human experience as learning

Linda Keys, Development Worker, Edinburgh Development Group

Written to encourage reflection, dialogue and change. A refreshing approach to equality with a strong focus on the individual, relationships and community. A practical Handbook that will prove useful to all those striving for cultural change to ensure fairness for all.

Tess White, Adviser, Warwickshire, Educational Development Service

What appealed to me most was the fact that you outline that if organisations and individuals take simple, common sense steps and adjust their way of thinking, it can make a huge difference for a large number of people. The examples you give underline how easy it can be to ensure that people are treated equally as well as feeling equal and that they are making a contribution.

Victoria Jones, PR Manager, Equal Approach Limited

I think your book provides a timely bridge between theory and practice, it outlines clear practical steps that illustrate that inclusion achievable, congratulations and well done!!

This book is a tribute to the relationships that made it possible. Like the old email goes: People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. There are so many to thank for happy days, shared conversations and inspiring ideas. As I wrote I thought of people I have listened to, those whose stories made new perspectives possible. Other people’s contribution is clear in the reference section, this
