Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

CHCP is committed to developing, supporting and sustaining an inclusive and diverse workforce that is representative of the community it serves. Equally we are committed to the provision of services that respects our increasingly diverse populations and which promotes equality of access and care. Our culture promotes equity and fairness for all in our employment and care and actively discourages any form of discrimination.

Equality is about making sure people are treated fairly and given fair chances whilst recognising they may have different needs to meet.

Diversity describes a commitment to recognising and respecting differences between people while valuing the contribution individuals can make to the organisation.

Inclusion encourages innovation within the workplace, allowing people to contribute to the way things can be done for the better.

The EDI Vision - The Priciples of FREDIE

At CHCP we treat our colleagues with kindness and respect and follow the EDI Vision, the principles of FREDIE as described in the FREDIE charter. You can view our FREDIE charter by clicking here

CHCP’s mission, vision and values promote the organisation as being a respectful, inclusive and fair organisation where people love to come and work.  The Equality Vision links in very closely with this and follows the principles of FREDIE which stands for  Fair, Respect, Equality, Diverse, Inclusive and Engagement.  We are really keen not just to promote this culture but to believe in what we promote and act accordingly. 

The principles of the vision have therefore been weaved into the charter which highlights how you can expect to be treated and equally how the organisation expects you to treat others.


What we need to do by law

The core commitment of CHCP CIC is to provide fair, accessible services for all and equality of opportunity for staff is underpinned by equality legislation.  Legislation of central importance to our Equality Strategy is:

  • Equality Act 2010
  • Public Sector Equality Duty

The Equality Act 2010 replaces previous anti-discrimination laws with a single act making the law easier to understand and strengthening protection in some situations.
