Our Commitment

Our aim is to ensure that all employees, job applicants, and stakeholders are given equal opportunity and that our organisation is representative of all sections of society. We strive to create an environment where each employee is respected, valued, and able to contribute their best.

Policy Statement

This policy reinforces our commitment to providing equality and fairness to all in our employment without discrimination or less favourable treatment on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, ethnic origin, colour, nationality, national origin, religion or belief, sex, and sexual orientation. We are opposed to all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination.
