Aim 5 - Equality and diversity helpline

Let’s chat.

Equality and diversity helpline

The Bar Council continues to offer a confidential equality and diversity helpline to all pupils, members of the Bar, and chambers staff. The line provides practical support and guidance for barristers and chambers facing equality and diversity challenges.

The range of issues on which the helpline can provide support includes: implementing the Equality and Diversity Code and chambers’ maternity and parental leave guidelines; dealing with harassment from another member of Chambers or staff; reasonable adjustments and making chambers and services accessible to people with disabilities; workforce monitoring and the fair allocation of work.
