Single Equality Scheme

The Council introduced a Single Equality Scheme to develop an overall view of equality and diversity. We have published two previous schemes covering the periods 2009-2011 and 2012-2015

The aims and principles underpinning our single equality scheme are to:

  •     Meet the responsibilities placed on us by the equalities legislation.
  •     Ensure that equalities issues influence decision making.
  •     Identify what barriers people face and take steps to remove them.
  •     Develop measures and actions to tackle discrimination.
  •     Challenge discrimination against people who work for the Council or who use our services.
  •     Raise staff awareness and understanding of these issues.
