Equalities


SLAB is committed to the promotion of equality and to tackling discrimination of any form, including age, disability, gender, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation


Our equality aims and priorities

Equality and diversity matter to us. In our mainstreaming report we outline the wide range of work we have done to ensure that we comply with the general and specific equality duties. This is in relation to both our staff and our service users. This report also describes our HR data, and how we have analysed this in relation to equal pay.

Our new equality outcomes are based on the evidence we have collected and on feedback from our staff and various representative bodies. We believe they will challenge us positively in the right areas, and with continued planning we believe they are achievable and will make a real difference. The outcomes are:

More information on how we identified these outcomes, and on how we plan to work towards these outcomes, can be found in the mainstreaming report:

Consulting with our stakeholders

We are committed to involving and consulting with our stakeholders in our equality work. We have used interviews and focus groups to inform our equality schemes. We also regularly collect equality information in our more general research and national surveys. See our research pages for the research we have done to engage with our stakeholders. Recent equality research and consultations include:
