The report of the Stephen Lawrence Inquiry acknowledged the existence of institutional racism and recommended that the provision of training be reviewed (recommendation 54).

Training in this area is recognised as an intervention that has the potential to move organisations towards preventing acts of racial discrimination aimed at their employees, clients or customers.

This good practice guide provides recommendations on what constitutes effective practice and guidance on how practice can be improved and strengthened.

The guide aimed to help organisations across the public, private and voluntary sectors, that were designing and implementing new training or strengthening their existing provision.
