Diversity is expressed in all the visible and invisible differences between people, and this can lead to differences in experiences, values, attitudes, ways of thinking, behaving, communicating and working.
The Kent, Surrey and Sussex CRC is committed to upholding the new Public Sector Duty, as part of the Equality Act 2010. This obliges all agencies who provide services to the public to do the following:
- 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
We are committed to preventing discrimination in our work above and beyond the legal requirements. Our goal is to provide an environment where everyone feels valued, respected and motivated to contribute their best.
The key to this aim is developing and promoting a culture in which everyone recognises and values the diversity of our employees, job applicants, partners, offenders, victims and beneficiaries.
