Our Equality Objectives

Under the Equality Act 2010, the Council is required to set one or more equality objectives that will help meet its obligations to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations between people of different protected characteristics. Protected characteristics under the Equality Act are based on:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender reassignment
  • Marriage and Civil Partnership
  • Pregnancy and Maternity
  • Race
  • Religion and Belief
  • Sex
  • Sexual Orientation

Our objectives, published in December 2016 for review in 2018 are:

  • Work closely with our partners to ensure that we have a workforce that is trained, skilled and ready for work.
  • Increase the proportion of disabled residents in employment and ensure that disabled staff and residents are considered in future workforce planning.
  • Increase the opportunity for all council employees to fulfil their potential, and ensure equality of representation at all levels of the organisation.
  • Work to eradicate any discrimination within our recruitment processes and start recruiting for attitude and training to skill.
