#1forequality is a campaign led by just fair and the equality trust, and is supported by many groups and individuals. we URGE the uk goverment to implement the socio-economic duty by commnecing section 1 of the equality act 2010. we encourage local authorities to implement the socio-economic duty to tackle socio-economic disadvantage at a local level.
The UK is one of the most economically unequal countries in the developed world.
But inequality is not inevitable.
The Government has a powerful tool at its disposal. It could bring to life the Socio-Economic Duty of Section 1 of the Equality Act 2010, which requires public bodies to adopt effective and transparent policies to reduce the inequalities that result from socio-economic disadvantage.
Despite being passed by Parliament in 2010, successive governments since then have failed to bring Section 1 into force.
