Equality and inclusion
Meeting our Public Sector Equality Duty
- Eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation;
- Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not; and to
- Foster good relations between people who share a relevant protected characteristic and those who do not.
As part of our legal duty and commitment to the equalities agenda across Lancashire, Staffordshire and Central Midlands we annually publish our workforce data (within the Annual Equality and Inclusion Report).
This data is broken down by (pay bands), age, gender, disability, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation, and where information is available we will report by gender reassignment (Trans issues), marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, and carers.
Note: Some data may be withheld from the report to comply with Data Protection Act requirements when publishing equality data.
Request for information in an alternative format
We want to ensure that their information is fair and accessible to all sections of our local communities. To request any of our key documents in an alternative format such as braille, larger print or audio please contact email@example.com quoting your address, telephone number along with the format and title of the publication you want to request.
