Runnymede has launched 'The New Muslims'.

Runnymede's Head of Research, Dr Debbie Weekes-Bernard is quoted in an Independent article on skin whitening.
The History Lessons project, a local history curriculum based project, which we have been running in schools across the country since April of this year is coming to an end and we will be disseminating some of the work the pupils have made in a number of events taking place through October and November.

At Race for Opportunity's 2014 awards dinner, Runnymede's race equality scorecard was recognised as 'highly commended'. We are very grateful to our partners, Croydon BME Forum, Kingston REC and RAMFEL, as well as the three boroughs we worked with - Croydon, Kingston and Redbridge. We also thank Trust for London for supporting this project.
