Diversity is about valuing people as individuals and harnessing differences and potential – meeting needs creatively. Diversity is organisationally driven – the work we undertake to achieve our equality objectives and meet the council’s aim of ‘Promoting equality and celebrating diversity’.
Our policy statement:
‘We each have our own unique needs, skills, qualities and abilities. The council believes this diversity must be valued. We want to make sure our services meet everyone’s needs. We will not unfairly discriminate on any grounds...’
