Introduction

Under the Equality Act 2010, the Trust has a general Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) to:

  • Eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct that is prohibited by the Equality Act 2010;
  • Advance equality of opportunity between persons who share a relevant protected characteristic and persons who do not share it;
  • Foster good relations between persons who share a relevant protected characteristic and persons who do not share it.

The relevant protected characteristics (or groups) are: age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, race, pregnancy and maternity, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation.

The Trust publishes diversity data at least annually (a statutory requirement) as an enabler to meeting its PSED. By collecting and reviewing diversity data, the Trust can examine how its policies, processes and decisions might be impacting its staff and identify areas for improvement and action.
