We're working to make sure the response to Covid-19 meets everyone's needs and rights
Our Charity has Changed its name to:
Jamaican Elderly Disabled Charitable Trust/UK
We believe that a good and strong society is a just and inclusive one. where we are free from harm and can all contribute and flourish, whoever we are.
Equally Ours (previously the Equality and Diversity Forum) is a UK charity that brings together people and organisations working across equality, human rights and social justice to make a reality of these in everyone’s lives.
We understand the problems that prevent us from being the best society we can be, and shape the policy solutions that will get us there.
We do this by promoting dialogue and collaboration between equality and human rights researchers, policymakers, civil society organisations and funders. We translate research into recommendations for practical changes to policy and practice. And we share up-to-date research with anyone who needs it
We influence decision makers to advance evidence-based policy solutions that will create a just and inclusive society, with and on behalf of our members.
We bring our Trustees together, providing a platform to engage, network, share learning and discuss equality and human rights issues in depth. And we help us to find common ground and speak with one voice on shared policy solutions.
We find out what the public thinks and feels about social issues and why, and find ways of talking about them to make them matter.
This powerful evidence-based, values-led approach to communications draws on frame theory and behavioural insight.
There are four strands to our strategic communications work: audience insight research; frame and message development and testing; campaign and content creation; and building the capacity of civil society to communicate and campaign for change.
We Promote Equality & Diversity
Our focus is helping the most vulnerable overcome Isolation and exclusion and experience fullness of life.
We help elders of ethnic backgrounds, who also live in the UK in NW10 area of London where I originally resided.
This is the time of unprecedented uncertainty across the globe, it is hard to know how everything will plan out, but in the meantime please keep safe, and most of all, have faith. Inspired by our Christian faith. Together we can protect older people today for a better tomorrow.
Helping older people live long and healthy independent lives is the key aim of our charity. We will transform the way people get one to one care outside the usual care system already in place.
people have already told us what matters most is;
- Staying healthy, active and independent for as long as possible
- Getting access, so people can live how they choose
- Having support from professionals who understands their needs
- Tailored support
- Supported to manage long term
Together we can protect older people
The larger customer base is older people, and those with a disability. Their families are the first who will expect to plan and develop a lifestyle for their elder relative,
There is resistance to personalisation among this group, who perceive a threat to permanance in their loved ones support Arrangements, to and who do not believe that greater independence and acceptance is possible.
Our charity will help to solve these problems of demand for personalisation by:
Giving support to connect to mainstream opportunities and developing relationships outside of the social care world, and demonstrating to families this is possible .
