We take equality and diversity seriously and have 'treating people fairly' as one of our core values. We are committed to meeting the aims of the Public Sector Equality Duty to eliminate discrimination, promote equality of opportunity and foster good relations.
We recognise that there are some individuals and groups who are disadvantaged and more vulnerable than others and we are committed to providing services that are appropriate to everyone’s needs. In particular, we will address the needs of people with protected characteristics (age, gender, disability, gender reassignment, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion/belief, maternity/pregnancy and marriage/civil partnership).
