Since March 2020, Lincolnshire, along with the rest of the United Kingdom has entered unprecedented and disorientating times as we all seek to adjust to a ‘new normal’ during a time of global pandemic.

During this time stark inequalities and associated issues have been highlighted and brought to the fore particularly by the #BlackLivesMatters movement and the disproportionate impact of Covid-19 on BAME communities. It is clear that “we are all in the same storm but not in the same boat”.

JUST Lincolnshire is facilitating a series of conversations in order to highlight inequalities, amplify seldom heard voices and learn more of the impact of these issues on different sectors, the first of which took place today, Thursday 27th August on the topic of “Addressing inequalities in the third sector connected to ethnicity”. You can listen to a recording of the event here:

Health – September 24th​

Education – October 14th​
