14. Working with partners and stakeholders
To move the equality agenda on we need to work in partnership with others, including the NHS, police and fire service, Devon County Council, towns and parishes and the voluntary and community sector. Narrowing equality gaps and improving the lives of different groups will require us to share evidence and resources. This is included in our objectives.
We also work with the South West Equality Network to share learning, good practice and access to groups in society who can inform our approach to those with ‘protected characteristics’.
