Workforce Race Equality Standard 2020  

The NHS Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) aims to ensure that employees from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds have equal access to career opportunities and receive fair treatment in the workplace.

The Black History of Lancaster

In the 19th century, Dalton Square was home to a significant beneficiary from plantation slavery, John Bond, who lived at what was then number 1 Dalton Square, and was twice Mayor of the town. John Bond inherited his Dalton Square house, along with Yealand Hall (in Carnforth), and 18 shares in the Lancaster Canal, from his uncle Thomas Bond. He also inherited property and plantations in the West Indies, including around 700 enslaved people in Demerara (now part of Guyana) and Grenada.
