Equality and diversity

All councils in Dorset are committed to equality of opportunity, promoting diversity and eliminating discrimination.

We aim to do this by the way we deliver our services, employ people and in our role as community leaders. We believe that people have a fundamental right to fair treatment regardless of their age, disability, ethnicity or race, gender identity, sex, sexual orientation, religion or belief.
