Equality and Diversity


Sedgemoor has always been committed to promoting equality of opportunity, eliminating discrimination whilst ensuring that there is greater cohesion between the people and communities of the district. The introduction of the Equality Act 2010 has reinforced the approach that the council has long taken and will enhance and ensure that equalities is at the heart of everything that we do.

What is Equality and Diversity?

Equality is about giving everyone an equal chance to fulfil their potential. It means providing equality of opportunity, equal access to services and fair and proportional treatment

Diversity is about difference. Everyone is an individual with differences that can be visible and non visible. By respecting the diversity of individuals, they can feel valued for their contribution as an individual and to the community.
