Some of you may remember previous postings about Nottingham Equal. They are a local charity whose chairperson is the dodgy Councillor Hassan Ahmed and involves the equally dodgy Tyron Browne.
I had seen paperwork that indicated they were going to receive £20,000 grant from One Nottingham. I have been told this morning, that they actually received a £90,000 grant. The paperwork I have seen simply says they are receiving a grant and the recommended amount was £20,000. I haven’t been able to find any paperwork that says they were actually given £90,000.
This stinks, especially since Councillor Hassan Ahmed was one of the two Councillors who agreed to the removal of CEHRNN’s funding. Especially as there is clear overlap between the work of CEHRNN and Nottingham Equal. He really should not have had any involvement in this decision.
Nottingham Equal’s purpose is to “widen participation and representation of BAME stakeholders in local decision-making processes”. http://nottinghamequal.org.uk/
CEHRNN aims to “work with organisations and individuals for a just society, which gives everyone an equal chance to learn, work and live free from discrimination, prejudice, and the fear of all forms of harassment and violence.” http://www.cehrnotts.org/
