The last three chapters explored individual learning, the development of community groups and how communities can get more involved in activities and decision making. These activities, programmes and initiatives need to be firmly based on a set of values. In this chapter, this issue is explored, looking at how principles of diversity, inclusion and equal opportunities can be applied by practitioners in their work on strengthening communities. Building Equality, as a short hand term for this process, is discussed here in its own chapter but, in practice, equality issues need to underlie and inform all aspects of strengthening communities. This agenda is all the more crucial in the current climate where, as described in Chapter One, tensions have been on the increase. Part One in this chapter explores Building Equalities with groups; Part Two looks at the art of developing networks.
