Equality and diversity

Equality legislation means that all councils have a duty to publish information about how they are meeting the requirements of the Equalities Act 2010

Equality and Diversity Policy

The Equality Act 2010 places a duty upon Staffordshire Moorlands District Council to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Act.
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.

The Equality & Diversity Policy sets out how the Council will go about fulfilling this duty and sets out clearly the expectations about how everyone working for or involved at the Council will work to achieve our aims.

Getting our approach to equality and diversity right will bring significant benefits for the communities we serve, our customers and our workforce.
