Meeting our Legal Duty

Meeting our Legal Duty

As a public sector organisation, we embed equality, diversity, inclusion and human rights into all activities. To do this, we must demonstrate our commitment to:

  • eliminating unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation
  • advancing equality of opportunity
  • promoting good relations

We understand that our organisation and employees should:

  • work towards removing or minimising disadvantages
  • take steps to meet the needs of people from protected groups where these are different from the needs of other people
  • encourage people from protected groups to participate in public life or in other activities where their participation is disproportionately low

Our aim is to uphold these aims and to close the gap in health inequalities.
