Equality and Diversity

Our Equality Outcomes (2019-2023)


  • We support our workforce, encouraging participation across all age groups
  • We promote diversity across occupational groups


  • We have improved engagement with protected groups


  • People with protected characteristics have improved experiences of services
  • We take the views of people from protected groups into account when we change our services.


  • We do not tolerate bullying and harassment of people from protected groups.
  • The gap in educational attainment between people with and without protected characteristics is reduced.

These Equality Outcomes were agreed by Council in February 2019.
