Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Human Rights Policy
The Trust is committed to equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice both in the provision of services and in its role as a major employer. It believes that all people have the right to be treated with dignity and respect and is working towards, and is committed to, the elimination of unfair and unlawful discriminatory practices. As a public authority, the Trust also recognises its legal duty under the Human Rights Act 1998 to uphold and promote human rights in everything it does. It is committed to carrying out its functions and service delivery in line with the human rights principles of fairness, respect, equality, dignity and autonomy.
The aims of this policy include: ensuring that all staff, service users, carers and their families are treated with respect and dignity at all times; attracting, developing and retaining a diverse and representative workforce to secure the widest pool of knowledge, skills and talent; and ensuring that equality of opportunity and elimination of discrimination and harassment are embedded into all the Trust’s employment practices, policies and procedures.
