Board gets grant

Last updated: 2004-09-06

The Board of Deputies is delighted to announce that it has been awarded a grant of £11,000 from the Department of Trade and Industry under its programme to raise awareness of the Employment Equality Regulations 2003.

The funding will help the Board to update, disseminate and promote its new booklet about the legal framework and workplace arrangements affecting the employment of Jewish people.   The Board will be embarking on a major programme to distribute the booklets widely throughout the country.

Board Director General Neville Nagler commented: "The Board is thrilled with the news that our application for funding has been accepted.  There has for some while been a need to help both employers and employees to understand and satisfactorily accommodate the particular requirements of practising Jews in the workplace.  The Board of Deputies has long acted as a source of information and guidance to help facilitate best employment practice.  This grant from the Department of Trade and Industry will be extremely helpful in ensuring the success of our project to promote and distribute the employment booklet as widely as possible.  This initiative has great potential benefit and we very much look forward to working with the DTI.
