Children and Families - Equality and Inclusion
Cheshire East Council’s Children’s Services is committed to
achieving equality for all our service users and
staff. Working to the Council’s Single Equality Scheme
and Action Plan, we aim to ensure that all our service users and
staff are treated fairly and equitably irrespective of race, ethnic
origin, nationality, gender, disability, age, gender reassignment,
religion, sexual orientation, marital or parental status, political
belief or social/economic group.

adverse impact. By carrying out this assessment, we can make

discriminate against minority groups.

improve our service delivery. They may also show that we need more
information about our service users, for example through monitoring
