Equality means treating all people with fairness, decency and respect. Diversity is recognising difference and striving to meet people’s different needs in a positive way.
The council’s statement of commitment towards equal opportunities and diversity is as follows;
“Our mandate is to build a safe, just, tolerant and equal society for everyone in the Borough. All councillors, employees and those acting on behalf of the council are responsible for implementing our Comprehensive Equality Policy and have a continuing duty to challenge discrimination”.
Comprehensive Equality Policy
Our Comprehensive Equality Policy reflects the Public Sector Equality Duty. The duty requires us to publish information regarding local equality issues and set equality objectives.
Each report that goes before a committee of the council has a summary of impact on staff/communities within the report body. If you require more information, please contact the author of the report in the first instance.
