Equality and diversity

Worthing Homes is an organisation where differences between individuals and communities are valued and everyone is treated with respect. Equality and diversity is at the heart of all our activities in every aspect of the work that we do.

We recognise that we provide services to a wide range of people. Our aim is to be responsive to the needs of all of these communities and the individuals that we serve. This means making sure that customers and staff do not receive different treatment because of any of the protected characteristics covered by the Equality Act 2010 and that everyone can participate fully and equally.

Our Single Equality Scheme sets out our commitment to remove discrimination and provide real opportunities for our customers, staff and board members, ensuring no one feels excluded or disadvantaged.

You can download our Single Equality Scheme booklet, or request it in large print, Braille or audio format. We can also arrange for it to be available in other languages. If you would like a copy of the strategy in any other format please contact us giving your name and contact details, and the format or language you require.

Worthing Homes’ holds the 2-tick disability symbol. This is awarded to organisations who wish to promote and encourage the employment of people with disability.

Disability is often hidden and may not be visible to an employer. We will guarantee to interview anyone who discloses on their application form that they have a disability, as long as they meet the essential criteria within the person specification for the post.
