Equality is about creating a fairer organisation in which everyone has the opportunity to fulfil their potential.
Diversity is about recognising and valuing difference in its broadest sense.
This strategy is about treating everyone with fairness and understanding, not necessarily treating everyone the same. It aims to reduce inequalities in our services, including those linked to deprivation and those linked to the Equality Act protected characteristics.
The Trust is committed to being responsive and supporting the needs of the diverse population it serves, reflected in the Trust’s values. Equality and Diversity is not an ‘add on’, it is central to all we do as a provider of services, as an employer and also as part of the public sector.
