Equality and Diversity – Committee Papers

The Equality and Diversity Committee is the main vehicle for driving change through the organisation. The Committee forms part of the Patient and Public Involvement and Equality and Diversity Steering Group, which meets bi-monthly. 

This group is responsible for promoting, encouraging and ultimately delivering greater equality and diversity for the benefit of the Trust service users and staff. 

The approach of The Equality and Diversity Committee is based on the following principles: 

  • Everyone has the right to be treated fairly and with dignity and respect
  • Achieving equality requires awareness, understanding, commitment and positive action from very individual employee in the Trust at every level and across all disciplines
  • Diversity must be recognised and valued.
