Argyll and Bute Council believes in equality for all, and that means each and every individual in our communities. No one should be denied opportunities because of age, disability, gender, gender identity, race, religion or belief, or sexual orientation.

Now the council is underpinning that commitment by supporting One Scotland’s campaign to raise awareness of International Human Rights Day on Thursday 10 December, by raising a specially designed flag at Kilmory.

The council’s Policy Lead for Communities and Culture, Councillor Robin Currie, said, “Non-discrimination, equality and fairness form the basis of human rights and have a bearing on our everyday lives.

“Every person living in Argyll and Bute is a hugely valued member of our communities. As a major employer and as a provider of services the council has a responsibility to protect human rights while recognising that individuals and groups have different needs.”
