The Elliott Group define Equality and Diversity as:
- Equality - is about respect and not treating an individual or group of people unfairly. It is about giving people an equality of opportunity to access services and to fulfil their potential. Equality is therefore based on the idea of fairness while recognising everyone is different.
- Diversity - is about all the ways in which people differ and about recognising that differences are a natural part of society. No two people are the same and this means that many different elements make up our local community – something which should be celebrated. Diversity is about treating people as individuals and making them feel respected and valued.
There are 6 strands to equality that the Elliott Group focus on. The strands fit within the Groups aims of fair treatment to service users, customers, the wider community and staff. The Group is committed to meeting its legal duties under the six strands of equality.
