Carnegie UK Trust – Rural Action Research Programme.
Mainstreaming of Race Discrimination Advice in Rural Citizens Advice Bureaux
Why Carnegie UK Trust supported the project? – message from Philomena de Lima
This online toolkit, collates a summary of the approaches and resources produced by the four pilot bureaux. The toolkit demonstrates the ability of bureaux to develop innovative approaches to race discrimination advice with limited resources, and provides an opportunity for CAB to explore similar approaches to become more effective in identifying race discrimination issues and providing advice.

One key element across all the pilots was the role of community development in engaging with communities. and where this was part of the ongoing process it was more effective to build up relationships and engage with the communities and promote the services provided by the CAB. In Perth this approach led to support for the Gypsy and Traveller community, and in Trowbridge the work with various faith communities and Black History Month.
The community development approach has been effective in attracting clients from BME and Migrant worker communities and engaging new volunteers and trustees from those communities.
