Equality and diversity

We ensure that equality and diversity is considered at all times both in employment policy and in the provision of services.

Delivering on equality and diversity is a high priority. As a council, we have a key stake in responding to the needs and requirements of the citizens of Cherwell.  We

  • place great emphasis on the principle of placing communities at the heart of service provision
  • are committed to achieving equality of opportunity as an employer of people, provider and purchaser of services, educator, partner and community leader
  • place considerable emphasis on understanding, acceptance and appreciation of individual differences.

"Our vision is working to ensure equality, access and fairness in all we do." Sue Smith, Chief Executive.
