Our equality, diversity and inclusion objectives 2023-2026

How we prioritise what to do first

As a County Council, our capacity and budgets are limited, so we must think carefully about what will deliver the best results. We prioritise actions based on:

  • Our legal responsibilities - gaps in compliance
  • Independent reviews - for example, OFSTED, His Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services, the Care Quality Commission and safeguarding reviews
  • Data about how people use our services and any inequalities they experience - and what will achieve the greatest impact
  • Views of different people and communities

Objective 1: Promote race equality and eliminate racism across our workforce, services and communities.

Objective 2: Provide services, information and environments that can be accessed, understood and used to the greatest extent possible by all disabled people.

Objective 3: Promote equality for our LGBTQ+ service users and colleagues.

Objective 4: Deliver our EDI transformation plans in response to external inspections, peer and safeguarding reviews.
