'It is our diversity that helps us serve you better.'
Information on our work with equalities communities, organisations and groups can be found here. This is a core element of our team’s work.
Our vision is:
To eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimisation, advance equality of opportunity between people from different groups and foster good relations between people from different groups.
This is the essence of the duty that all public bodies must meet and it is our aim to actively deliver this duty through all of our services, functions and decision-making processes and through the power we have to influence partners.
This applies to the services we provide and to our role as an employer.
Equality of opportunity is not about treating everyone the same. It is about treating everyone according to their needs; it is about treating people fairly. Diversity is about recognising that people are different and have differing needs.
In these pages you will find out what we are doing to achieve our vision.

Islam is one of the main faiths practised in Britain today. Since 9/11 and the London bombings in July 2005 there has been a rise in Islamophobia. Myths about Islam and Muslims are common.
