In December 2021, GCCN Welcomed the opportunity to make a submission on the Review of the Equality Legislation 2021.

GCCN participated in the process of developing the submission from Community Work Ireland (CWI) and would like to lend our support to the calls for action included in the document below.

GCCN and our members believe that equality needs to be at the heart of policy and associated strategic and implementation plans nationally, regionally and locally. As set out in the CWI submission, GCCN members believe that protection under the equality legislation for the protected individuals and communities has been diluted over the past number of years and seeking redress has become much less accessible. This review needs to significantly improve protection, significantly extend protection and make redress under the legislation significantly more accessible.
