We place diversity and inclusion at the heart of everything we do and in doing this we want to have a diverse workforce that truly reflects the communities we serve so that we can provide them the best service possible.
The Equality Act 2010 states that everyone has the right to be treated fairly and equally. The Act also includes a duty called the Public-Sector Equality Duty (PSED) which requires public authorities like us to have due regard in the need to:
- Eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Equality Act.
- Advance equality of opportunity between people who have a protected characteristic and those who do not; and
- Foster good relations between people who have a protected characteristic and those who do not.
As part of this duty Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service is also required to publish equality information at least annually.
