We aim to provide high quality inclusive services and facilities for all, and our Equality and Diversity Policy is clear on the need to provide information to staff and the public in appropriate and accessible formats. Our aim is to ensure that all customers have equal and independent access to all services provided by the council and that any additional needs of the customer are met.
