Our Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Strategy sets out our priorities for the period 2019 to 2021.

This is an important document that explains how we want to:

  • develop our organisation
  • work with partner agencies
  • build relationships with our diverse communities

In developing the strategy, we ran a series of public engagement sessions last year and an online survey to enable members of local communities, employees and partners to review our proposed strategy and provide their views. We have taken full account of these views throughout the consultation.

In the last couple of years, through the work of our Positive Action team, we have made good progress in increasing the diverse make up of organisation, as part of our drive to be more representative of our communities. However, there is a lot more to do to ensure that we are able to be fully representative of our communities at all levels.

This Strategy gives us the framework to ensure we continue to make positive progress.
