Landlords urged to attend Cultural Awareness Course

A so-called Cultural Awareness Course is being held to explain to landlords about their responsibilities under the 2010 Equality Act.

The course is run by the Ethnic Youth Support Team Wales, a group campaigning to enhance equality and social justice in housing in Wales, which says the exercise is a bid to ensure private sector landlords and agents are aware of guidance issued as part of the Anti-Racist Wales Action Plan.

Propertymark is urging its member agents to attend, aas well as landlords. 


There will be sessions taking place on June 4 at 12pm, July 31 at 1pm, and November 13 at 1pm.  

Tim Thomas, Policy and Campaigns Officer at Propertymark, went to visit the Ethnic Youth Support Team Wales in Swansea last week and says: “The Equality Act has placed greater emphasis on the duties of private sector landlords and agents to stamp out racism and following my meeting with the Ethnic Youth Support Team Wales, I feel like these sessions would be a fantastic opportunity for Propertymark members to understand their legal duties in greater detail so that they can, most importantly, deliver for their tenants.”
