VISION STATEMENT
 
1. WISC's VisionStatement:
 
“WISC will continue to advocate and campaign for policies and strategies which involve partnership with organisations and institutions that empathise with the quest to promote equal opportunity, improve race relations, tolerance and understanding amongst people of different cultures.  
 
The objective is the elimination of racial discrimination, other categories of bigotry and race hate crimes which have led to the famous rate hate murders of Kelso Cochrane and Stephen Lawrence; and to put in place the framework for creating a fair and just society” 
 
WISC is dedicated to the quest to eliminate race hate and to enhance the quality of life for all peoples in the United Kingdom by continuing to be the champion and custodian of the philosophy of Equal Opportunity and Human Rights; a quest which it began in 1958 and led to the 1965 Race Relations ACT.  WISC holds the view that Equality must mean equal and fair treatment for all communities. No community should be excluded from being an integral part of society.
 
2. VALUES
 
WISC takes pride in the knowledge that communities, even those who did not support the campaign have had the quality of their lives enhanced through the implementation of the 1965 Race Relations Act and the subsequent revisions and amendments. WISC values will continue to be evidenced through the following standards:
  • Integrity
  • Accountability
  • Quality assurance in service delivery
  • Application of the tools of monitoring, evaluation and complaint response
  • Equal and fair treatment
  • Equal Opportunities
  • Influencing Policy Changes and Development
  • Equality in Diversity

The plan proposes working across the following strategic priorities:
  • The need to build an integrated society where equality and diversity are celebrated through interaction between sections of the community and participation by all sections of the community;
  • Addressing inter-community conflict prevention and resolution
