Equalities Policy

Disability Confident logo

It is our intention to ensure that the talents and resources of members of staff are utilised to the full, and that no employee or job applicant receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of disability, sex, marital status, sexuality, colour, race, nationality, ethnic origin, religious belief or age.

Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Policy Statement

The code of practice published under section 122 of the Police Act 1997 advises that it is a requirement that all registered bodies must treat DBS applicants who have a criminal record fairly and not discriminate automatically because of a conviction or other information revealed.

The code also obliges registered bodies to have a written policy on the recruitment of ex-offenders; a copy of which can be given to DBS applicants at the outset of the recruitment process.

Here you will find our policy on the Secure Handling of Information provided by the DBS.
