Glasgow Equality Forum (GEF) is a City wide strategic policy forum which brings together representatives of voluntary sector equality networks in Glasgow to encourage better co-operation and cross-sector engagement on equality issues. In particular, it aims to support the embedding of equality in Community Planning and service delivery and to provide a conduit for knowledge sharing and partnership working on equality.

Glasgow Equality Forum provides strategic and policy expertise, and through the associated Equality Networks can provide access to wider viewpoints, including opportunities to engage with grassroots community organisations. Forum members can also provide advice and support on effective community engagement. It should be noted, however, that the Glasgow Equality Forum itself is not a community engagement forum.
