Towards Outstanding is committed to promoting equality and diversity in all its activities to promote inclusive processes, practices and culture within the services we contract with.
It is our firm belief that without equality, you cannot provide outstanding care or treatment, Equality is the basis of excellence, with consideration of individual needs and preferences. Our commitment stretches further than the requirements of the Equality Act 2010; the foundation of our work is a consideration that all people are worthy of equality and respect.
We will strive to work to eliminate any unlawful or unfair discrimination including direct or indirect discrimination, discrimination by association, discrimination linked to a perceived characteristic, harassment and victimisation.
We will remain proactive in taking steps to ensure inclusion and engagement for all the people who work for and with us.
We will continue to strive towards a culture that is diverse and inclusive that recognises and develops the potential of all staff and service users.
We recognise the business benefits and opportunities of having a diverse community of staff who value one another and realising the contribution they can make to achieving excellence and expect providers to be working towards this.
