Equal treatment from Caerphilly County Borough Council
Caerphilly County Borough Council is opposed to discrimination in any form and aims to ensure that all sections of the community have access to and benefit from the full range of services it provides.
The council must comply with a wide range of legislation and employment regulations in the field of equalities, most recently the Equality Act 2010 (Statutory Duties) (Wales) Regulations 2011 and the Welsh Language (Wales) Measure 2011.
The council is firmly committed to doing all it can to respect the diverse nature of those who live in, work in and visit the county borough.
"This council recognises that people have different needs, requirements and goals and we will work actively against all forms of discrimination by promoting good relations and mutual respect within and between our communities, residents, elected members, job applicants and workforce.
We will also work to create equal access for everyone to our services, irrespective of ethnic origin, sex, age, marital status, sexual orientation, disability, gender reassignment, religious beliefs or non-belief, Welsh language, BSL and other languages, nationality, responsibility for any dependents or any other reason which cannot be shown to be justified."
This section of the council website provides information on specific equalities and Welsh language issues, including copies of the relevant policies, action plans, progress reports and guidance documents.
It also provides contact details if you want to have your say on our equalities work, if you want to report issues of discrimination and hate crime in the county borough, or if you think we are not doing what we should be doing.
