Equal opportunities means treating everyone equally regardless of their race, religion, gender, age, disability or sexual orientation. An equal opportunities statement is produced by a group to show their commitment to equal opportunities and illustrates how they will ensure that they do not discriminate.
This is a process that looks at how successfully an organisation or project has met its aims and objectives. Evaluation is about finding what has worked well and why, so that this knowledge can be used to make the organisation or future projects more successful. Evaluation may also look at the overall impact of a project and whether its aims were valid in the first place.
If a project is naturally coming to an end of its life or its funding is ending and the project cannot be continued, the project will need to consider an exit strategy to ensure that people who have become dependent on the project are not disadvantaged by its removal, as this can often undo much of the good work that the project has achieved during its lifetime. An exit strategy could involve looking at the resources of other organisations or projects with similar roles or putting in requests for further funding.
