Equality and diversity
North Wales Fire and Rescue Service is committed to promoting equal opportunities in employment and service delivery across the whole organisation. It is Service policy to ensure that all service users, job applicants and employees are treated fairly and with care. We recognise that people can experience disadvantage and discrimination for many reasons, and fully support the provisions of current legislation to remove these barriers.
We aim to develop good policy and practice to ensure effective implementation of anti-discriminatory processes by the Service. We aim to address discrimination by a positive programme of measures in the areas of:
- providing services
- purchasing services
- employing staff
- working in partnership with other organisations.
The senior management of the Service are committed to leading in this process, not only because of a legal imperative but also because to do so helps us in achieving our operational and business goals as well as demonstrating the role of the Service in promoting community cohesion within the region.
