Equality and fairness

Equality duty

It is our duty to make sure anyone can use our services, regardless of:

  • age
  • disability
  • gender reassignment
  • marriage and civil partnership
  • pregnancy and maternity
  • race
  • religion or belief
  • sex
  • sexual orientation

Our Collaborative Communities Framework, below, was agreed in January 2021. It sets out our equality objectives for the next 4 years. These are:

  • access to services
  • building cohesion and integration
  • improving resilience
  • developing our workforce

The framework will improve the way we engage with communities, talk about shared concerns and work better together.
