Equality and diversity
We believe that everyone is entitled to fair and equal services that take account of individual needs and backgrounds. We actively advocate for equality and believe that everyone we come into contact with deserves the same standard of treatment and support. Furthermore, it is essential for us that people using our services, their carers and our employees have opportunities to be involved in shaping how our services develop.
All of our services are working towards reducing inequalities. The Equality & Diversity Team supports this work as well as key projects that will help us ensure we continue to improve the care we provide and the support we provide to our service users, carers, staff, volunteers and experts.
Our new Equality Plan 2018 - 2022 shows how we will development our workplaces and services to eliminate inequalities for all protected groups. This is underpinned by principles of:
- Removal of systemic barriers
- Promoting a wider understanding of intersectionality
