Discrimination service launches November 14, 2006

A service to help victims of racial discrimination has been launched.

The one-to-one service has been set up by the Dundee Citizens Advice Bureau after gaining funding to employ a part-time case worker for 12 months. Dundonian Shehraz Afzal, on secondment from NHS Tayside, will advise victims of discrimination and can also represent them at employment tribunals.

Dundee’s ethnic minority population is higher than the Scottish average, at 3.7%, compared with 2%.

The new service, based at the CAB’s Wellgate Centre offices and funded by a grant from the Commission for Racial Equality, aims to help anyone who feels they have suffered from discrimination.

Dundee CAB manager Mary Kinninmonth said: “People who have suffered racial discrimination can feel extremely stressed and isolated and we hope to be able to support them to take things forward.”
