Equality action plan

We are currently developing an Equality Action Plan which will be central to our strategy for 2021-23. For this work we have appointed a taskforce with representatives from our staff and College members, trainees and patient and carer experts.

We organised a series of four roundtable discussions to advance equality within the College and for all groups of members and trainees as well as patients, carers and mental health services. We chose the roundtable panellists from diverse groups representing College staff and its members, as well as representatives from national charities and individuals with expertise on working to reduce inequalities. We made the roundtables open for all members and staff to attend and contribute.

The taskforce reviewed total of 29 previous reports and their recommendations and used these to inform the current action plan – you can view these recommendations below.

We are expecting the action plan to be released along with the RCPsych strategy on 1 January 2021.
