About this page

This Equality Plan explains how Harborough District Council aims to promote equality and good relationships and challenge discrimination and harassment.

As a Local Authority we have both a legal and a moral duty to show fairness and equality to our residents, our service users and our employees. We know that the population of our district is becoming more diverse and that people have very different backgrounds and life experiences. As a result of this we want to make sure that we continue to provide services and facilities that meet the varying needs of our residents and that, as an employer, we achieve fair recruitment and provide a work environment that is free from discrimination.

The plan explains our statutory responsibilities and explains how these duties will be delivered.
