Equality and Diversity
We operate in a multi-cultural and diverse society and recognise our statutory and moral obligations to ensure that everyone has access to the same opportunities. This applies to everything that the Trust is involved in; the provision of all housing / support & care services, new development activity, staff employment, trustee recruitment, appointment of contractors, and in all other areas of work.Our equality and diversity objectives seek to eliminate all forms of discrimination, victimisation or harassment and to promote equal opportunity for everyone so that no individual is treated less favourably than another.
Equality - We believe that people must not be unfairly discriminated against because of race, gender, disability, sexual orientation, age, religion or belief.
Diversity- is about valuing individual difference and ensuring our services are responsive to the diverse needs of the people who we work for. We aim to achieve this by including equality and diversity objectives within our business planning systems and set targets and monitoring performance in all key areas, including racial harassment and the employment of contractors.
