Equality and diversity

The council values diversity in our city.

A welcoming and inclusive city brings a wide range of benefits for everyone.

Communities are strengthened and individuals and groups thrive and prosper when they are treated fairly, with respect and given access to the services they need. The council has an important role in making this happen.

Disadvantage and discrimination may take a variety of forms, and so in order to give people equal access to services and opportunities, we sometimes need to tailor our response to meet their needs.
