Equality and diversity

We are committed to giving fair and equal treatment to people regardless of their age, appearance, caring responsibilities, physical or mental disability, employment status, religion or belief, sexuality, social and economic background or any other reason which causes a person to be treated unfairly.

 

What is equality and diversity?

 

Equality is about making sure people are treated fairly and have equal access to our services.

 

 

Diversity is about valuing individual difference. It challenges us to recognise and value all sorts of differences. In hand with this, it also aims to stamp out any discrimination or harassment because of a person's differences.

 

Zero tolerance

 

We recognise that certain groups and individuals, including those listed above, are more likely to be discriminated against. We are committed to zero tolerance and eliminating all forms of unfair discrimination and promoting equality among staff and customers.
