Keep the discrimination hotline out of G4S’ control

Why is this important?

The Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS) is a lifeline for many victims of discrimination. It gives advice those in need and supports them through their instances of discrimination or human rights violations.

Now the government wants to hand over control of the helpline to G4S - who have a long track record of abuse, failure and mismanagement.

We're calling on the government to reverse the decision to pass on control to G4S and find a more suitable provider for the discrimination helpline.
