We are committed to delivering services in a fair and equal way irrespective of age, sex, race, disability, religion or belief, pregnancy and maternity, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership or sexual orientation.

Equality Act 2010

The Equality Act seeks to ensure people are not discriminated against because of certain characteristics, like age, race, gender or disability.

Delivering services in a fair and equal way

We are committed to delivering services in a fair and equal way and we endeavour to embed equality and diversity objectives in all our work.

We use Surrey-i, our local information system. It publishes information about our residents and communities. This helps us understand the outcomes experienced by residents with different protected characteristics.
