Equality and diversity

Equality and diversity

Hambleton District Council is totally opposed to all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination and we pro-actively observe the Equality Act 2010 and Public Sector Equality and Diversity (PSED) legislation.

Our Equality Statement describes our commitment to encouraging diversity amongst our workforce and in the services we deliver.  The HDC Equality & Diversity Policy ensures this commitment is embedded within all our activities and the Equality Objectives outline the current specific objectives. The Human Resources Equalities Report provides information on our workforce and employment practices.

We also provide an Equality Impact Assessment Guide explaining the correct procedures should an assessment be appropriate.
