Equality & Diversity Policy

Derbyshire Dales District Council has a duty to encourage and promote equality as an employer, in the provision of its services, and in carrying out its public functions.

The District Council recognises the importance of its employees in achieving its corporate aims, and their role in continuing to provide high quality services. We aim to create a working environment in which all people are able to give their best; that is free from discrimination, harassment, victimisation and bullying; where everyone feels valued and motivated; and where decisions are based on merit.

Managing diversity means ensuring that everyone is treated fairly and has access to the same opportunities and services; and different people feel included and respected.
