Equalities Statement

Carers First are committed to promoting equality of opportunity, tackling discrimination and welcoming and valuing the diversity of the communities we serve.

We will aim to ensure that no person receives less favourable treatment from the organisation including on the grounds of race, colour, gender, transgender, marital status, religion, disability, age, or sexual orientation.

We are committed to achieving equal opportunities in everything we do, and welcome the contribution that a diverse community can offer, and to meet these aims we will:

  • treat all people equally according to needs, irrespective of their race, colour, ethnic origin, religion or beliefs, gender, transgender, age, sexual orientation, physical, mental, sensory or learning disability, marital status or economic status or any other factor. 
  • not tolerate harassment or intimidation of any kind and will respond to all reports of harassment/intimidation
  • encourage all individuals to apply to us for employment. We value the differences amongst our staff and aim to use their differences in a positive way, towards meeting our objectives
  • be committed to ensuring that equality of opportunity underpins all our procedures, policies and work practises.  This will be supported with equal opportunities and diversity training for our staff.
