Arun Gopinath, CSREC manager, said: "The new fora we are setting up in Stirling and Clackmannanshire, Stirling People's Rights and Equality Group (SPREG) and Clackmannanshire People's Rights and Equality Group (CPREG), allows community members to raise and discuss issues on equality, diversity and human rights as they emerge so these ideas can be taken up with relevant authorities and practical solutions can be found.
"CSREC will support these fora with the principles of empowerment, participation, inclusion, equality of opportunity, anti-discrimination, self-determination and partnership."
