Equality and diversity

We are committed to promoting equal opportunities when providing services to the community and as an employer.  We oppose all forms of unlawful or unfair discrimination on the grounds of colour, race, nationality, ethnic or national origin, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, religion, belief, refugee and asylum seeker status, disability, caring responsibility, age, marriage or civil partnership, or pregnancy and maternity.

We accept that treating people as equals is not about treating them the same, nor is it about ignoring differences.  To treat people equally, we need to treat everyone fairly with due respect to their differing needs.  We therefore strive to provide our services and employment opportunities in a way which meets people’s needs.  See the links below for more details:

If you need more information please get in touch with our equalities officer using the contact details on this page.
