Hillingdon Partners signed an updated version of the Equalities Statement on Tuesday 22 July, 2009.

The statement reflects the partnership's commitment to pursuing diversity in both employment and service delivery as well as Hillingdon's diversity vision and how it links into the strategic direction.

The signing of the Equalities Statement unites Hillingdon Partners in an equality agenda.

The Equalities Statement:

"The Local Strategic Partnership "Hillingdon Partners", which brings together all the major public service organisations in the borough, as well as representatives from local businesses, community and voluntary groups, is committed to equality of opportunity and reflecting the diversity of the residents it serves.

The primary aim of Hillingdon Partners is to improve and enrich the quality of life of those living and working within this diverse borough by creating a sustainable community; a place of choice for people to want to live, work, study and visit, now and in the future.

In order to achieve our aim, all members of Hillingdon Partners commit to ensuring they challenge and eliminate discrimination and promote equality of opportunity.

Hillingdon Partners will ensure that all residents are provided with equal access to its services and that its employees are provided with equality of opportunity regardless of age, disability, gender re-assignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.

In practical terms, Hillingdon Partners will work towards:

  • Developing a community where everyone feels valued and there is equal access to services and employment across the statutory, private and community/voluntary sectors.
  • Ensuring that residents are treated with dignity and respect whilst using services across the statutory, private and community/voluntary sectors.
  • Facilitating an environment that is free from harassment, intimidation, bullying, victimisation or unlawful discrimination and anti-social behaviour, and promoting good relations between people of all groups.
  • Developing effective consultation, engagement and communication methods so that residents are involved in development of strategies and plans.
  • Developing and achieving equality targets to deliver the Sustainable Community Strategy 2008-2018 that are reviewed regularly, reported annually and published.
  • Fulfilling the requirements of the Equality Act 2010 and the Public Sector Equality Duty through delivery of Sustainable Community Strategy priorities and partnership activities.
