safe, just and tolerant society enhancing opportunities
for all and in which rights and responsibilities go hand

is maintained and enhanced.
To support and mobilise communities so that, through
active citizenship, they are able to shape policy and
improvement for their locality, overcome nuisance,

To deliver the Department's policies and

The Secretary of State for the Home Department is

agreement sets out the key objectives for the Home
Office over the period 2001/2004 which will deliver the

Promoting race equality in public services is a key
priority for the Government. The Home Secretary is
committed to making equality, particularly race equality
for which the Home Office has lead responsibility in the
Government, a core issue in mainstream programmes and in
all of the services delivered by the Home Office and its
agencies. In this SDA we have identified areas where
there is a clear race equality dimension.

relevant documents, click on the desired heading below:

PSA targets and other untargeted Objectives.
