Find out more about ISCRE
ISCRE (the Ipswich and Suffolk Council for Racial Equality) became a registered charity in 1996, having started in 1977 under the name 'Ipswich & District Committee for Community Relations'. In 1982 the name changed to 'Ipswich and District Community Relations Council' and again in 1987 to its present name, ISCRE.
The concept of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect.
Diversity means difference which can be many and varied in the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, national origin, culture, marital status, family structure, health, values, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies.
Equality is about making sure people are treated fairly and given fair chances. Equality is not about treating everyone in the same way, but it recognises that their needs are met in different ways.
ISCRE delivers race equality services that bring significant benefits to Suffolk communities on issues around employment, housing, education, social welfare and criminal justice.
Our aim is to work towards eliminating racial discrimination whilst promoting equality of opportunity and facilitating good relations between Suffolk's diverse ethnic/racial population.
