Equality statements

We are committed to equal opportunities for all. We want Lichfield District to be a place where all people thrive - physically, mentally, socially, spiritually and economically.

We are committed to enhancing the general quality of life of the people who live in, work in and visit our district.

This is done through the promotion and improvement of economic, social and environmental well-being, working in partnership with others and by targeting our resources towards greatest need.

This means sustainable development and communities must be at the heart of everything we do.

Our equality statement demonstrates how we work to ensure people are treated with dignity and respect, aiming to create equality of opportunity and eliminating discrimination in both service delivery and employment practices.

It shows how we seek to embed equality considerations in everything we do and fulfil the requirements of the Equality Act 2012, specifically the public sector equality duty. It also shows how service priorities reflect our community profile and priorities identified through local and national research.
