Westway Trust launch inquiry into institutional racism within the organisation - Deadline extended to 31 January

Have you had a chance to input into the investigation into claims of institutional racism within the Westway Trust?  If not there is still time as the deadline has now been extended to 31 January 2019.

The Tutu Foundation is conducting a comprehensive and fully-independent review into the practices and policies of the Trust, both past and present. The Tutu Foundation UK is an organisation which was set up to disseminate the legacy of Archbishop Desmond Tutu and to use and promote the concept of Ubuntu in the UK. Ubuntu encourages us to recognise our common humanity, our connectedness and inter-dependence as fellow human beings, in order to seek reconciliation.    

The Tutu Foundation are inviting members of the public to have their say in an independent and comprehensive review into the practices of Westway Trust, both past and present.

Thursday 7th November saw local residents attend the launch of the inquiry into institutional racism within Westway Trust which will be led by the TuTu Foundation. People as far back as when the Trust was first set up are asked to provide any evidence that they feel important to be taken into account. People can submit evidence online or arrange to be interviewed.  The final report will be expected around May 2019.
The portal can found on the Tutu Foundation's website at www.tutufoundationuk.org/the-review

For more information on the review, and quotes from the joint Chairs of the community advisory panel Alan Brown (Chair of the trust board) and Niles Hailstones (Westway23 and One Voice Community Collective), please download the full briefing here.
