County Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue Service (the Service) has made a strategic commitment to adopt a Scheme which brings all of the equality strands together because:
- We recognise that inequalities are rarely experienced in isolation but are often interdependent
- We wish to focus on the “whole” picture when planning and delivering services
- We make a commitment to make the most of resources and deliver value for money
The Single Equality Scheme pdf is our public declaration and commitment of how we, in the Service, plan to meet the duties placed upon us by equality and diversity legislation and best practice, in managing our staff and meeting the needs and wishes of our local population.
The consultation process on equality is ongoing. If you would like to give us feedback on our Scheme or Action plan, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
