Mythbusting booklets about equalities groups

We have commissioned a number of booklets as a part of our ongoing commitment to mythbusting.

All booklets have been commissioned in response to specific local events, such as; new sites for gypsies and travellers, the rise in Islamophobia following the 7/7 bombings, to allay community fears, promote equalities and eliminate discrimination.

To date the following publications are available from the Equalities and Community Cohesion team at
