Unearthing new insight and evidence

I am aware of enduring inequalities and need evidence and insight to address them

In relation to most areas of public policy, people from minority groups are at a disadvantage. Black people are 6 times more likely than White people to be stopped and searched by the police, the gateway to all Criminal Justice System agencies. Gay men are 7.5 times more likely to have attempted to take their own lives than straight men. Disabled people are more than twice as likely to be unemployed as non-disabled people. Women do 58% of unpaid care work, with consequences on their income and health. Why? The answers vary for each service and for each target audience. In a nutshell, though, this is because social policies, services and products are developed to meet the needs of the largest groups of people.

This is where Versiti can help. We have worked for more than 20 years to address inequalities and promote greater equality and inclusion by improving the evidence base in relation to diverse minority groups.

Our experience spans government departments (e.g. Department for Communities and Local Government, Department for Education, Government Equalities Office, Department of Health, Home Office, HMRC, DEFRA), non-governmental public bodies, local authorities and large charities. We have earned a strong reputation for excellence, integrity and enthusiasm.
