Equality and diversity

We're committed to creating a culture in which equality of opportunity is actively promoted in every aspect of service provision and delivery, and the working environment. We aim to remove barriers and improve access to our services and to achieve equality of opportunity in our employment practices. When we make decisions which may have an impact on equality and diversity, we take into account The Equality Act 2010.

What is our Equality and Diversity Policy Statement?

We need to ensure that we maintain the highest quality of service and set standards for our employees.

Our policy statement aims to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations between all council workers.

Community impact assessments

To make sure that we consider the needs of all sections of our community and our impact on the environment during the development of policies and projects, we complete impact assessments for projects or policy development. This is to help ensure that we do not inadvertently disadvantage individuals or harm our environment.
