Central Scotland Regional Equality Council (CSREC) was set up in 1984. It is a voluntary sector organisation, registered as a charity and a company limited by guarantee consisting of individual members and representatives from a wide range of organisations. CSREC has a remit to work across the areas of Clackmannanshire, Falkirk and Stirling Councils. It was set up to eradicate all forms of discrimination under the Race Relations Act 1976. Following the introduction of the Equality Act 2010 and in recognition of intersectionality, we widened our remit to work with all nine protected characteristics. The main aims of CSREC are:
to work towards the elimination of discrimination in all its forms
to reduce inequality and promote a culture of human rights
to promote good relations between persons of protected characteristics without distinction on grounds of age, disability, marital status, pregnancy/maternity status, race, religion/belief, sex, sexual orientation and gender reassignment
to promote, build and work in partnership
Central Scotland Regional Equality Council’s Forth Valley Communities for Conservation project will bring together households from minority ethnic communities living in Central Scotland. The project will aim to reduce carbon emissions in households and empower members of the community to work together to change their behaviour to positively tackle climate change.
