Corporate Equality and Diversity Policy
South Gloucestershire Council works for all communities and individuals. We have produced a Corporate Equality and Diversity Policy which details our commitments and aims in this area.
We are committed to valuing and treating all people with dignity and respect.
Our approach is threefold:
- To recognise that people, whether as communities or individuals, will have specific needs that need to be recognised and addressed in order for them to develop their full potential
- To acknowledge that the majority view is not always right and the rights of minorities will need to be protected
- To mainstream equalities into all aspects of our policy development and service delivery
