Equal Opportunities Policy

Equality of opportunity is recognised by the Board of Trustees as a fundamental right of all employees, service users, visitors, volunteers and work experience placements.

This Policy sets out the Board of Trustees’ aims and objectives in maintaining and promoting equality of opportunity as well as the responsibilities of various parties in its achievement.

 

Equality of opportunity is acknowledged by the Board to be a positive benefit by ensuring that its legal obligations are fulfilled and by recognising and utilising the range of backgrounds and talent available within the workforce and the community it serves.

 

Trustees, employees, service users, visitors, volunteers and work experience placements should recognise that various Acts of Parliament and Codes of Practice, which carry with them both individual and collective legal responsibilities, underpin this policy.
