The Department for Business Innovation and Skills has published an occasional paper on the business case for equality and diversity. The report considers the evidence for the business case for equality and diversity in private sector organisations. The aim is not to make the business case, but to assess the current evidence from academic journals and some key practitioner sources. Key Findings: * Studies appear to have found evidence that firms have reaped business benefits from equality & diversity, but not all firms in all contexts at all times.

It includes examples of how councils have worked in partnership with local people using services, user led and voluntary organisations, to transfer planning skills to other people using services. 2) Support planning and brokerage for older people and people with mental health difficulties.
