In particular, this means actively promoting equality and diversity within our people and organisational development work with clients.
We ensure the commitment to equality of opportunity is translated into working practices with clients. To this end we award the same access to our services irrespective of race, gender, age, marital status, social background, disability, religion or sexual orientation, and will work with our clients to ensure that this is possible.
