The North Yorkshire Equality and Diversity Strategic Partnership (NYED) has been established with membership from a wide range of public, private and voluntary sector organisations. There is a mailing list of over 1,000 organisations which will engage with NYED, and an executive list of about 30 which will take part in day-to-day discussions, and attend NYED meetings. NYED was established to support and promote the interests of dispersed diverse communities in the County. In particular this has evidenced a disturbing reduction in the degree of priority given by public and private organisations to the needs of specific equality groups in their own internal policies, and consequently in the delivery of the services they offer.
