Equality & Diversity Statement

As Partners in Pet&r LLP we support equality of opportunity for everyone and are committed to providing services fairly to all sections of the community. We recognise that people may experience discrimination and disadvantage or may be affected by previous discrimination or disadvantage. Therefore we will seek to identify and eliminate unjustified discrimination in our own activities, and to challenge it elsewhere, employing proportionate positive action where appropriate.

As providers of services we will continue to pursue equality of opportunity through the development and review of our policies, procedures and practices. We will seek to recognise and meet individuals' needs, whilst remaining within our legal powers and available resources. In accordance with current legislation we aim to ensure that we do not discriminate unfairly in relation to any of the protected characteristics directly or indirectly, by perception, association, or through discrimination arising out of disability. The protected characteristics are: age; disability; gender reassignment; marriage or civil partnership; pregnancy and maternity; race; religion or belief; sex (gender); and sexual orientation. Furthermore, we will ensure that an individual's breastfeeding requirements, do not result in them receiving a lower standard of service from the partnership or our associates.

This statement relates to the provision and purchase of services, as well as the Partners' voluntary activities in the community, and their engagement of associates, employees, workers, etc. People covered by the provisions of the policy include: Partners; associates; volunteers; workers; students, pupils, or trainees; suppliers; providers of services; representatives of partner organisations; clients, participants, candidates, and service users.

Our equality and diversity policy will be communicated in writing in our memoranda of understanding, proposals, tenders, and / or programme handbooks, and explained during induction. It is also available on our web site. Implementation of the policy will be supported through the delivery of relevant training and guidance.

Allegations of discrimination, victimisation or harassment towards or by clients, associates, participants or third parties will be treated seriously and investigated fairly and thoroughly by the Partners. This will be followed by prompt and appropriate action.

Through monitoring and review we will ensure that our policy is implemented and our commitments and responsibilities are met.
