Equality and Inclusion Welcome
"Inclusion for All"
The Council recognises that promoting equality and inclusion
will improve public services for everyone. We want Cheshire East to
be an area of equal opportunity, where everyone has a fair chance
and people from all backgrounds take part in community life. Our
aim, therefore, is to make equality an integral part of the way the
Council works by putting it at the centre of everything we do. We
are committed to celebrating diversity and promoting equality – as
an employer, in the services we provide, in partnerships, and in
the decisions we make.
We have legal responsibilities relating to equality but we see
these as a minimum requirement.
Equalities and the Law
Guidance on all aspects of the Equality Act and how it affects
you can be found on the Equality and Human Rights Commission
website. This national organisation provides information and advice
about equality and diversity and produces guidance on the legal
responsibilities we have to adhere to as a council.
