The Greenwich Race Equality Scorecard brings together quantitative evidence on seven key indicators to help inform the decision-making process of public authorities, and to equip local communities with the tools necessary to hold those authorities to account.
In 2013 the Runnymede Trust ran a pilot Race Equality Scorecard project in three London boroughs: Croydon, Kingston and Redbridge. The purpose of the Scorecard was to enable BME communities to enter into meaningful dialogue with their local authority and its partners, to assess their performance and help identify what the local priorities were for race equality. The Scorecard facilitated a better understanding of the pressures faced by BME communities, identified key areas where change is necessary and feasible, and created the opportunity for these different partners to work together to make a difference.
Since then the Scorecard project has also been delivered in Sutton, Barking and Dagenham, and has been refreshed in the three pilot boroughs.
