Scarborough Borough Council believes that
equal opportunities and diversity are central to all its functions
and services. We are committed to ensuring that there are
vibrant, sustainable and cohesive communities in Scarborough
Borough, in which all people can play as full a part as they wish.
We will challenge, change and implement structures to remove
the barriers that prevent people from participating in the issues
that affect their lives.
We will consider the needs and aspirations of all our customers,
residents, visitors and employees, regardless of age, sex, gender
identity, disability, sexual orientation, race, socio-economic
group, religion or belief, physical abilities, or learning
abilities, or any other characteristic.
The Equality Act 2010 replaced previous antidiscrimination laws
with a single act, bringing together, harmonising and in some
respects strengthening equality law. The Act includes a new
Public Sector Equality Duty, replacing previous separate duties
relating to race, disability and gender equality, which is in force
from April 2011.
This Corporate Equalities and Diversity Plan sets out how will
intend to fulfil our obligations under the Equality Act 2010 and
brings together the range of equality and diversity initiatives and
projects the Council, with the help of its partners, is working on
into a single coordinated equality programme for the next three
years to ensure that our commitments become reality.
