Equality and diversity

CHSW is committed to the principle of equal opportunities in employment and recognises its obligations under the Equality Act 2010 and declares its opposition to any form of less favourable treatment, whether through direct or indirect, associated or perceived discrimination accorded to employees or job applicants, on the grounds of their sex, race, ethnic origin, nationality, religion or belief, disability, age, marital/civil partnership status, gender reassignment or sexual orientation, pregnancy or maternity.

CHSW is committed to creating a positive culture of respect for all employees, volunteers and families and to promote positive practice and value the diversity of all individuals and communities.

CHSW embraces and recognises the importance of diversity and that different people bring different perspectives, ideas, knowledge and culture, and that this difference brings great strength as well as contributing to employee well-being and engagement.

Our aim is to create a culture that respects and values each person’s differences, that promotes dignity, equality and diversity, and that encourages individuals to develop and maximise their true potential.

We expect commitment and involvement from all our employees, volunteers, partners and providers of goods and services in working towards the achievement of our aim.
