Here are some examples on how they are trying to tackle racism They also focus on exploring stereotypes, defining racism and learning about how to deal with racism.

For example they have to make sure that child is taken care of in the right manor, have the right type of accommodation to meet their needs and making sure that the child has access to education. It is also stated that if the child?s needs are not met to its full potential that they have the right t placed into temporary care of social services or a family member who is able to care for the child until further notice. It promotes anti-discriminatory practice by putting down un-arguable laws so that children are always in a safe position i.e. If parents' divorce unless the mother is incapable the mother gets automatic rights to the child where as the father would have to take it to court in order to get approval.

Age Discrimination Act 2006 The age discrimination act was passed and since then it was officially unlawful to discriminate someone just because of their age. Eg you cannot fire someone just because they are too old as it against the law. You also cannot refuse to employ some one because of their age. This act protects old and young people from discrimination and harassment. This Act was passed and it has been made unlawful to discriminate someone because of their age. Equality Act 2010 The purpose of this act is to consolidate acts and regulations which were formed from the basis of anti discrimination law in the UK. This act was originally the Equal Pay Act 1970. This legislation has got the same goals as the four major EU equal treatment Directives. It requires equal treatment with access to employment as well as private services regardless of their age, gender, religion, race, sexual orientation or beliefs. This act applies to all organisations around the UK who are service providers and it also applies to people who sell goods or provide facilities and the 2010 Act ranges from employment measures to the provision of goods and service. This law promotes anti discriminatory practise because it -Eliminates unlawful discrimination-harassment, victimisation and any other conduct prohibited by the Act -Advance equality of opportunity between people who share protected characteristic and people who do not share it: and -Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it. ...read more.
