Equality and human rights

Find out about our policies and plans for equality and human rights and about specific work we are carrying out in relation to the different areas of equality.


We've developed a new policy and strategy for equality, diversity and inclusion. Our new strategy includes our main equality objectives and action plan, and will cover all of our functions and services, as well as its employment practice.

One of the main ways we can do this is by carrying out equality impact analysis, a process which helps inform decisions we make.

We're working hard to advance equality and to tackle discrimination and harassment against people because of their protected characteristics. This includes work to improve race and faith based equality, gender equality, equality for disabled people, for people of all ages, and because of sexual orientation and gender re-assignment .

Acting fairly as an employer is an important way we can demonstrate our commitment to equality. You can find out more about our work to become a fair and diverse employer.
