Our Single Equality Scheme demonstrates how we will ensure our services reflect fairness and equality. This scheme will replace our current schemes on Disability, Gender and Race and extend our work to cover all strands covered by the Equality Act 2010.
The Scheme's action plan focuses on key strategic themes which form the foundation of all our business and service areas. This plan has been driven by a comprehensive consultation with our key stakeholders, both internally and externally. The plan reflects not just our statutory duties, but also our corporate commitment to improving our services and work place practices.
To deliver this scheme we will need the support of all our partners and staff. We will monitor and review our performance annually, to ensure we achieve all the objectives set out in this scheme.
