Equality and diversity

We’re proud to serve such diverse communities in Cambridgeshire. Our employees are responsible for providing a fair service to everyone. We aim to meet the demands of our communities by embracing and valuing equality and diversity.

Not only do we have a moral and legal obligation to promote equality, we are required to act in line with the Equality Act 2010 which covers the following personal characteristics;

  • age             
  • disability
  • gender reassignment
  • marriage and civil partnership
  • pregnancy and maternity
  • race
  • religion and belief
  • sex and sexual orientation.

Equality objectives

To ensure equality and diversity is considered in everything we do, we have five core objectives;

  • Achieve a positive shift in our workplace culture where people, no matter their background and circumstances, feel confident to disclose their protected characteristics.
  • Attract, engage, develop and retain a workforce that is representative of the communities it serves.
  • Understand our communities by developing effective engagement strategies that enable interaction with diverse groups, fostering strong relations that build trust and confidence.
  • Work with our partners to implement strategies to explain, where necessary reduce, and where possible eliminate disparity and enhance public service.
  • Understand the impact of our policies and practices on people with different protected characteristics by conducting equality analysis and take steps to remove or minimise disadvantages.

Equality and diversity statistics

To provide the best possible support to everyone, we aim to build a force that reflects the diverse communities we have in Cambridgeshire.

Minority groups and those with disabilities are currently under-represented within the organisation. We are progressing our workforce so that we don't discriminate or stereotype against recruitment opportunities, our staff and our communities.
