Our commitment to equality

We are committed to treating people fairly and meeting the aims of the Public Sector Equality Duty which require public bodies to:

  • eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct prohibited by the Equality Act 2010
  • advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not
  • foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.

The protected characteristics are: age, disability, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation and marriage and civil partnership.

We are currently ranked the highest performing public sector organisation in the Midlands. We are also a Disability Confident Leader employer.

Our aims are to:

  • Develop and support a diverse workforce
  • Develop, commission and deliver inclusive and responsive services

Our equality objectives and performance

Our equality objectives are:

  • Objective 1: To build on the council's existing culture to ensure NCC is an inclusive place to work and promotes a sense of belonging for everyone.
  • Objective 2: To ensure that our recruitment processes and development opportunities are fair, inclusive and accessible.
  • Objective 3: To embed an inclusive approach towards implementing health and wellbeing initiatives so that the needs of all employees are taken account of. 

These objectives are due for review in 2026.
