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.
Use the links on the left to find out what we are doing to make sure our services are inclusive and accessible for everyone, how you can report harassment, find out about some of the key religious festivals, how we measure the accessibility of our employment opportunities and much more.
