The Hampshire Independent Equality Forum (HIEF) is a united county-wide network of diverse not-for-profit groups and individuals. It was initiated by a Big Lottery funded partnership led by Action Hampshire, and aims to:

  • Raise awareness of the issues faced by diverse individuals and communities
  • Empower individuals to feel able to challenge discrimination

  • Make new contacts and share resources and best practice
  • Work in direct partnership with service providers to influence and improve services so that they better meet needs (eg. NHS, police, councils)
  • Share experiences on issues of inequality, and influence change
