Equal Opportunities Policy

Equality statement

We are committed to eliminating unlawful discrimination and promoting equality of opportunity in all that we do. This policy is a statement of how we intend to tackle discrimination and harassment and promote equality.

We consider it important to have an equality of opportunity policy because we recognise that, oppression, disadvantage and discrimination still exists in society. This policy demonstrates our commitment to address these issues and take action to seek to put this imbalance right.

Please note: work is currently underway to review our existing equalities framework, with a refresh of our equalities policy and equality objectives. 

We aim to ensure that all groups and individuals within our community and workforce have equal opportunity to benefit from services and employment opportunities we provide.

Review of the policy

This policy will be reviewed every three years unless we are required to do so due to change of legislation.

Equality and diversity strategy

Our corporate equality plan has been developed to reflect the priorities outlined in our strategic plan and it demonstrates how equality and diversity underpins all of the work we do.  

Please note work is currently underway to review our existing equalities framework, with a refresh of our equalities policy and equality objectives. This page will be updated with the latest documentation in due course.
