Equality and Diversity at Work

Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue Service is a community service and is committed to promoting equality of opportunity and to giving the highest level of service to our diverse communities throughout our area. Our aim and commitment is to ensure that no employee or job applicant receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation or is disadvantaged by requirements that cannot be shown to be justifiable. In delivering services we ensure that members of the public are treated with dignity and respect regardless of culture, background or lifestyle. We are committed to listening to the varied needs of our diverse community and to provide services appropriately to them.  We expect the same commitment from any agencies/partners who work on our behalf. All employees have the right to be treated with dignity and consideration at work. This extends to the right to work in a safe and healthy environment free from harassment, bullying and discrimination or intimidation either directly or indirectly by other employees.
