Equality and diversity
Equality is about making sure people are treated fairly. Equality is not about treating everyone in the same way, but it recognises that their needs are met in different ways.
Equality focuses on those areas covered by law, namely the key areas of age, gender, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation.

- Develop a diverse and inclusive workforce at all levels of the Council.
- Develop services that meet the diverse needs of our customers and potential customers.
Commission services that meet our equality commitments.
