Equality and Diversity

Our Commitment to Equality and Diversity

We recognise diversity and actively promote equality and fairness in all the environments in which we operate. 

We aim to achieve this by:

  • Recognising, respecting and listening to the varied needs of our communities and staff
  • Providing different solutions for different needs and requirements
  • Valuing and encouraging better understanding of people's differences and things we have in common
  • Treating everyone with dignity and respect
  • Challenging prejudice and discrimination
  • Fostering an inclusive and trusting culture
  • Ensuring employment practices are fair and non-discriminatory.

Our policies, statements of values and means of contacting us can all be found within this Equality and Diversity section.  Please use the sub-menu to find all of this information.
