Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Equality and Human Rights are for everyone. This means people who use services or members of staff. Everyone has a right to be treated with dignity and respect; this means to have their Human Rights respected.

Equality is relevant to everyone; people should not face discrimination and should have equal opportunities irrespective of characteristics that they may have. We know that sometimes people face discrimination and barriers to employment or services because of certain characteristics.

These are:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender
  • Gender Reassignment
  • Marriage or Civil Partnership 
  • Pregnancy and Maternity
  • Race
  • Religion or belief or lack of religion or belief
  • Sexual Orientation
     

The law protects people in these groups and because everyone will be a member of one or more of these groups at some time, equality and equal opportunity is important to everyone.
