Equality issues cut across all TSRC’s work streams. We conduct research that looks specifically at minority or disadvantaged groups, how the third sector benefits these groups, and the role of these organisations within the sector as a whole.
We look at how the third sector addresses particular issues of inequality, such as homelessness, as well as the broader role played by the sector in addressing inequality and disadvantage. We address regional inequality, looking at how voluntary groups relate to and are affected by this.
Through the workforce stream, we examine equality within third sector organisations themselves, looking at the position of women, ethnic minorities, older people etc.
Below, we signpost you to some of our most relevant research for issues of equality.
