Our equality and inclusion commitment statement
We aim to continuously improve the standards of service we provide to the community we serve. We recognise the importance of, and are committed to promoting equality and inclusion in the provision of our services and to our employees. We are committed to encouraging equality and inclusion amongst our workforce and to eliminating unlawful discrimination. We aim for our workforce to be truly representative of the community we serve and for each of our employees to feel respected and to be able to give their best.
We recognise our legal responsibilities under the Equality Act 2010. Specifically, the public sector equality duty to eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation, advance equality of opportunities and to foster good community relations, and have an engaged, fairly treated and motivated workforce. In particular we oppose and are committed to eliminating all forms of unfair treatment at work based on: age, disability, sex, race or national origin, religion and belief, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, marital or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity, political opinions, trade union activity or membership and lack of trade union activity or membership.
In working to protect and keep communities and individuals safe from fire and other emergencies, we recognise that people’s needs may be different and that some will be more at risk than others of fire and other emergencies. We aim to target our services and resources to protect the whole community and to reduce the additional risks faced by some. In developing appropriate services, we will work to engage and involve our communities.
