Welcome to Health Equality North East

This is a website to highlight what North of England Clinical Commissioning Groups are doing around Equality, Diversity and Human Rights.

According to the 2001 Census, 15 per cent of people in Great Britain (8.6 million people) said they had no religion; 72 per cent of people (41 million) identified themselves as Christian, making it the largest religious group; Muslims were the second largest religious group (1.6 million) and the information provided by them shows a young, tightly clustered, and often disadvantaged, community.
