Fairness, Respect, Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement (FREDIE)

We are committed to developing, supporting and sustaining a respectful, inclusive and fair organisation where people love to come and work and is representative of the communities in which we work. Equally we are committed to providing services that respect our increasingly diverse populations and which enable equality of access and care.

This vision follows the principles of FREDIE which stands for Fairness, Respect, Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement.

Fairness is about being reasonable, right and just.

Respect is having due regard for feelings, wishes and rights of others.

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 they can make to the organisation.

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

Engagement shows a two-way communication and commitment between our organisation, our people and our partners.

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.
