Equality and diversity
South Cambridgeshire District Council is actively promoting equality and diversity and working to combat discrimination across all 9 strands of diversity:
Age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and belief, sex, sexual orientation
The Council is committed to eliminating discrimination and prejudice, and developing a culture, which values difference both in employment and service delivery. Our commitment to equalities is based on the idea of equal life chances. This helps local authorities to develop an equal society for the community which is serves.
The Council also recognises that the potential for isolation, discrimination and unfair treatment can be far higher in communities such as South Cambridgeshire where the rural nature of our community adds to the potential for disadvantage to people. This means that we have a greater challenge in ensuring that their voice is heard in the community.
